How did this turn out for you? I want to keep my maiden name as a second last name, too. I’d love to hear if keeping 2 middle names is easy in Pennsylvania. Thanks for the info!

I had to go to the SS Office first with my current ID and a copy of our marriage certificate, then to the DMV.

And you were able to keep your original middle name and add your maiden name as a second middle name?

 

I’m just curious because some of the boards mention that some states require a court order to do this. I hope PA makes it simple! Thanks so much!

I’m really interested to hear more about this, too!  FH has two middle names already, so I’m hoping that PA is pretty relaxed about 3 vs. 4 official names!

I wish I had known that when I changed mine…  I would have kept my middle name too.  =)

 

@mudbug:  The least painful part of the name change is with S.S. and the DMV…  The problem comes afterwards when you have to change it for ALL your other accounts, registrations, loans, etc. 😉  I’m still working on mine and I changed it a month ago.
