Taking maiden name as middle name?


I was recently married and want to take my maiden name as my middle name, but I read online that changing your middle name after marriage is not supported in Ohio and you have to petition the courts to change it. Has anyone else tried this? What happened?

Re: Taking maiden name as middle name?

  • Yes, my sister-in-law tried it.  You have to go through a legal name change... lawyers, judges, fees, everything.  Just like if your husband wanted to change his last name or anyone wanted to change their first name.
  • I took my maiden name as my middle name (I got married in 2009).  No problem at all--when I filled out the form at Social Security they told me to fill it out with whatever name I wanted to use.
  • I am wanting to do this too and I never thought about how it would be different to change my middle name since i am changing my last name.  Kaite, have you been able to figure out details to find out if its the right decision for you?
