Changing Thai Name

My girlfriend has just changed her name and I am suprised at how easy it is, I know in the UK it takes months and loads of paperwork, but in Thailand it takes 10 minutes.

So first off they have to decide on a new name, forename or surname or both, get them to check the spelling, make sure it doesn't sound like a rude word in some other language, not that there are rules against this but introducing your girlfriend to workmates or friends as "Miss knobgobbler" may cause a smirk or two, next nip down to the local amphoe / district office, show them your Thai id card and tabien ban, tell them the name you want, they will do a quick check to make sure of no arrest warrants, and hey presto the name is yours after paying the 50baht fee, now down to your local id card place, in Pattaya it is city hall and get your new id card.

I think it's a great idea for guys that have a couple of small wives or giks, get them all to change their name to the wifes name and hey presto no more of those embarrassing moments when you use the wrong name.

Yea, my wife wants to change her name in the US....she couldn't understand what the big deal is....I told her it is going to cost hundreds of dollars, involve a lawyer and going to court, and take 1-3 months!

It's quite funny how they will change their name to improve their 'fortune', rather than work harder or think for a change.

Saying that, the Midget changed her name ages ago, as her evil grandmother gave her one hell of a name. Poor kid.

When we got married the girl behind the counter made out the marriage certificate then while we moved over to the big bosses desk for the final signature the counter girl performed a divorce for a Thai couple,then moved over to another desk to complete my wife's name change...very efficient but don't know what the other 8 workers were there for

LOL...only once in 2004,
...and it had to do with keeping only one last name.
I was born with 2 lastnames, just got tired of writing out my long last name.

Not in thailand.
My thai lastname is all over many family properties and business paperworks. It will be too complicate and time consuming to change them.

I wish I'm not sometimes, life will be less complicate for me.
But what can I say, my family clan hasn't moved from the same spot in BKK for the last 200 yrs or so. Over times we have been collecting "things".
