Bump….I’m very curious about this also, as I’ll be changing my name this year, too.

I changed my name after moving here (all of my paperwork was from GA) and I’m not sure of the specific rules for something that you’re thinking about…but, I did drop my middle name and moved my maiden name to my middle name with no problem.

I had a sheet that was signed by the person to issue our marriage license in GA with all of the information I needed to take to the Social Security Office and it took about 10 minutes to get that taken care of and I got a piece of paper as a holder Social Security card. I used the holder card at the DMV to get my new OR license with new name.

When we got our license (Multnomah County) They only had a few options for name changes, they were:

No Change

Firstname Middlename Hislastname

Firstname Yourlastname Hislastname

Firstname Middlename Hislastname-Yourlastname

Firstname Middlename Yourlastname-Hislastname

That was it. He can also change his name, but those were still the options, just replace “his” with “her”.

I don’t know if this is an Oregon wide rule or a Multnomah County thing.
