A Deed Poll can be used to add a middle name to your existing name. The Deed Poll will act as legal proof of your new name and enable you to amend your records accordingly. Some people may choose to add a middle name if they have a popular forename and surname, in order to make them more distinguishable. When choosing a middle name you may decide on a loved ones name or a celebrity or sportspersons name. If you have a middle name already you may decide you donít want a middle name anymore, and this can be omitted from your name by Deed Poll.

It is important that once you choose your middle name and receive a Deed Poll, you get your records updated; otherwise, your new middle name will not be classified as your legal name. However, when adding a middle name you can take your time to change over your records, as it is not a major name change, unlike when you change your forename or surname. For example, you may decide to alter your passport when it expires and needs renewing. Then, after a certain period of time all your records will have been changed over to incorporate your new middle name.

 When changing your middle name or adding a middle name, ensure you notify organisations of your name change.
