Question by Ana: How do you legaly change your name?
I've never minded my name much but I'm starting to meet allot more people that have the same name as I do and I'm getting sick of it. How old do you have to be? Is there a fee? What's the whole process? Is it true that you have to announce your name change in your cities newspaper? Please help.

You have to be 18 if you don't have your parent's consent.
To do it legally and properly, you have to do it through court.
It depends on where you are sometimes too.
And yes you must publish a name change notice in the local newspapers.
You might not have to depending on where you are, but it will be hard to prove you were "someone else" before if you don't have the paper to prove it.
It can cost up to 300$ dollars sometimes, depending on where you are.
