Hey! I’m actually I’m feeling very sad. Never thought that I would end up on a website taking about it. This thing is kinda an ache for me from several years now. This is regarding my name. I don’t like my name on the documents. I don’t have my real last name but instead there is ‘Kumari’ before my name and I don’t like it. I wanted to change it in class 10 but somehow it doesn’t and 10th marksheet is kinda a date of birth certificate. This actually doesn’t triggers me that much back then but now as I’m in second year of college this thing started triggering me again. I don’t know what to do. I wanted to change my whole name but I don’t if I can now means during my graduation and my father will not agree on this that I know. I don’t know why this thing is an ache for me. Who so ever reading this I wanted say Thank you!

It is difficult to explain and understand who hasn’t gone through the same situation. i hope you make peace with your name. It is what will make you as a person. I hope you are as special as your name.

Still you are really unhappy with it, you can get it changed later when you are an adult. Even in 10th certs you can get it changed but it takes lot of running around to different offices and involves some money too. If it is something you can do without , it will save you lot of time and effort.

Let me know what you decide! 😃

Yes I really want to change it but not have the guts to ask my father. Actually I did when I was in school but I think he’s not interested and I think when I’ll ask him this he surely gonna scold me and this thing continuosly runs in my brain. Ugh I feel different.

I feel you should not stress about it so much because you cannot do much about it right now, right?

How about re-think about it when you are little older or you have more authority over your life?

I hope you find something you can work upon like taking up a course, learning something which can distract you for sometime?

The idea I’m suggesting is regressive but worth your situation without hurting anyone.

I’ll suggest you to wait until you are graduated and married. Once you are married you’ll have an option to change your name i.e. legally on documents too. That way you are happy and no one is hurt.

So hold on a little bit if not visit this link for more information.

Yes I have searched about it many times. It’s easy to change in marriage certificate but that’s will be too late. I can change is after my graduation that I know but I don’t know that can I change it during my graduation? I have searched it but haven’t found any answer 😦

Not aware of it specifically but process for changing the name will be as informed.

Anyway, changing the name during graduation is not wise that is what I feel.

Is it okay after graduation and before post graduation?

It is okay any time before enrolling to new course. Complete your graduation change your name. Update it in your graduation documents then get admission to PG with new name.
