Can I change my Surname by Deed Poll to make it Double Barreled?
If you wish to change your surname to make it in to a double barreled surname, for example to add an additional surname after marriage rather than adopting your partner's surname as is, this is the same as any other Deed Poll change of name.
Once you have decided to change your surname to make it double barreled you will need to obtain a legally worded name change document known as a Deed Poll. This website allows you to create and download an officially recognised Deed Poll document that can be used as evidence to prove your new double barreled surname.
You must first fill in our online name change application form with your personal details including obviously your change of name. Even if you are just making a change to your surname to make it double barreled it is important that you fill in the full name you wish to be known as, including first and any middle names as well as your new double barreled surname.
You will then need to make your payment by PayPal. You will be directed to the payment screen once the form is processed. The cost of each Deed Poll name change document is £10. As soon as your Paypal payment is confirmed you will be directed back to this website to download your new Deed Poll document. It is a good idea to print several copies of your Deed Poll document for future use.
Your Deed Poll document must now be authorised by signing and dating in the presence of two witnesses who sign the document to show they have witnessed it. Your Deed Poll document is now an officially recognised proof of your new double barreled surname. It is a good idea to print several copies of your Deed Poll document. Make sure you date and sign and have witnessed all of your printed copies for use in the future.
You can now use the document to inform all of the UK Government agencies and other organisations and companies who hold your personal records to inform them of your change of name.
