What if you could change your real name?

I certainly would NOT choose the name this guy did: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/06/beezow-doo-doo-zopittybop_n_1190410.html

However, I have legally changed my name twice. First, when I got married and took my husband's surname. Second, when we got divorced and I took my maiden name back. I'll be honest with you - the first time was 100 times easier than the second time. The first time you just tell people you got married and sometimes show them a copy of the marriage license. No big deal. The second time they make you send notarized copies of the divorce decree and fill out a bunch of forms and then about half of them still get it wrong... I've had to make a special deal with my postman because some of the mail still shows up with my former married name and he wasn't going to deliver it because that name wasn't listed as the resident of my apartment.

My future child will regret that I've read this.

Yet people can get married at 18 and sometimes younger. The horror.

Yes. My name sounds a bit unsexy.

If people could change their names at will, I'm sure there'd be lots of nerds with the name, Kirito. Imagine walking everywhere, the cashier is named Kirito, your best friend is named Kirito, and probably even your dog is named Kirito, how awkward.

As for myself, I really like the name Hawthorne, so I want that name.

Arthas, just Arthas, why? For obvious reasons. We only call eachother by one name anyways.
