Default Getting your name changed

My friend has wanted to do this for quite some time. He has a rough family situation and wants to disassociate himself from them. It's a long story. Anyway, is it easy to get your name changed in New York City? What exactly is the process involved?

Thanks for the info. Aside from the paperwork, it seems very simple to get done. As long as it's a legitimate name and you're not doing it to avoid debt or steal a celebrity's identity, it looks like the name will be approved. I thought it would be much more difficult to get done.

I heard it has to be for a good reason. One of my friends is changing his middle name to Swinnus and he's having to tell the judge that his grandfather just died and was really close to him and his 1st name was Swinnus... That whole story obviously isn't true. He just wants to change his middle name to Swinnus. No joke. And he's getting it done too.

I read those two links and pretty much they'll approve as long as it doesn't involve a celebrity's name, involve symbols, or to avoid debt of some sort. I only thing I don't understand is you have to have it published in the paper. You didn't commit a crime. Isn't just telling everyone you know enough?
