my DD is 4 months oldHer name is K.... Ellie V..... surnamehave really had trouble with Ellie from the start and it was DH's choice not mine. I feel that, rightly or wrongly, it is not a 'real' name but is a nn, plus not to my tasteIdeally would like to delete it altogether and use Hope instead for personal and family reasons. DH has caved n to my demands (grin)Do you know if i can do this - do i just need to go back to the registry office and re regster as K..... Hope V.... ( surname )
Yes.Ring the registry office. In my case they sent me a small form which I filled in. I then made an appointment and they changed the name on the register and issued a new birth certificate.There's a box at the bottom of the birth certificate, box 17 for change of name. We added a middle name, my ds's original name is still at the top of the certificate.
It is very easily done. You are right: Ellie is a nickname (it's short for Elephant).
thank youknew you could add names before 1 year but was not sure if you could remove any
