You need to change it by deed poll. My son did it years ago. Can't remember how but it was very simple.

I think if the change is due to the parents getting married then they can issue a new birth certificate in the new name and it doesn’t count as a “name change”. Not sure if there is a time limit.

Yes, you can re-register the birth if you and her father have since got married, otherwise it can't be changed but you can change it by deed poll.
