Changing a NameOccasionally, parents choose a name in a hurry, perhaps because of its meaning alone, and they later regret their choice. They may have chosen a popular name that is encountered daily, and they belatedly realize that many future classmates of their child will have the same name. Relatives may not like their name choice, or they may have found another name that they like better. Can a name be changed?
If you wish to change your child's name, it is best to do it as soon as possible. Government records, such as Social Security information, must be changed, and friends and relatives must be notified. Children who are older than 1 1/2 or 2 years old will notice the difference, and it can be confusing for them. Older children may even want a say in the change. Give a name change serious thought before going ahead with it, but if you are very uncomfortable with the name you gave your child, it could be well to change it.
