Massachusetts Name Change Change

No, the title is not a typo. There has been a new change to Massachusetts Name Changes that is worth knowing about. People get their names changed for many reasons, from the (perceived) frivolous to the very intimate, and somewhere in between. As long as the reason is not one of fraud, the commonwealth will permit the change.

In the past that reason got listed on the certified copy of Name Change from the state. Name Changes can be prompted by some deep and personal reasons such as being transgender or changing a last name after a very strained or non-existent relationship with one’s father. The state is reacting with sensitivity to a request to change that by no longer listing the reason once it has been approved.
