@classical_wolf:   I cannot answer about the name change companies,  but a similar topic was brought up yesterday.  I’m not sure NY will allow option 2. Research name options,  so you don’t get suprised 🙁

Changing your name really isn’t all that complicated honestly. The SS office and the DMV are the worst of it, and if you go on off times it really doesn’t take that long. I think those companies basically just fill out the forms for you, which IMO is a waste of money.

@beemyname:  

+1. In trying to help a bee from Ohio yesterday, I was surprised to discover via missnowmrs.com that Washington, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey allegedly do not allow a woman to change her middle name due to marriage. Allegedly, a woman would need a court order in these states to make her maiden name her middle name on any state documents, even though she can have her name changed in this manner with the SSA.
