You can ask to change your name to almost anything you want. But there are some limitations.
You can't ask to change your name...
- while you're involved in any kind of lawsuit or while you are on probation or parole
- if you are barred as a child abuse offender from changing your name under Utah Code 77-43-105(7)
- to avoid creditors, fines, or sentences in criminal actions
- to commit fraud
- to change your name to something bizarre, unduly lengthy, ridiculous, or offensive to common decency
You must also have lived in the county where you will file your paperwork for at least one year.
