On my 23rd birthday (2008), I changed my common law/usage first name to Alwin. I've wanted to change my legal first name to this as well, but have not been able to justify the expense*, as I understood it's legal in CA to change your name under common law for free, as long as you're not doing it to defraud. I mostly go by TheButterZone on the internet.
Inspired by the "First Bitcoin Baby" Bitcoinstarter (https://bitcoinstarter.com/projects/946
) and posts about it on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=757000.0;all
, I thought, if someone would help with the paperwork and cover all the costs*, why not change my first and middle names to Alwin and Satoshi respectively, in one shot? My middle initial is already 'S', so changing the name to Satoshi wouldn't be that drastic.
I'm not aware of any adult who has changed their legal name to Satoshi yet, so I'm willing to be the first. I don't have any civil or criminal liability to escape, or foresee any financial benefit (other than saving money on the name change costs). One would think this should be good PR for whoever helps me, however.
Who is Satoshi? Please make that my middle name.
