Hello,

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.

Can you share what your current first name is ?
I assume you don't like it?? And that is why you are changing it, so its probably a good one to share :p ??

BTW... Why Alwin ?? Or am I missing something ?

I guess he has some sort of affinity for Germans!

Alwin is a German form of Alvin and may refer to:

Jonathan. I haven't liked it since I was in elementary school. I shortened it to Jon in the early years, then John up until 2008 for aesthetics.

I requested a spiritual name change and was told Alwin, meaning 'noble friend', and it hilariously turned up in my ancestry later on. I forget the exact relation... I need to look in my dad's database.

I guess he has some sort of affinity for Germans!

Alwin is a German form of Alvin and may refer to:

German affinity? Not really, other than some DNA. Japanese affinity, absolutely, which is why I can't see regretting Satoshi as a middle name.

Because people can pledge money and it only gets posted if enough is raised by a certain date. If not, the money is returned.

I would pledge if I knew it would be successful.

BitcoinStarter.com does that also.  The only difference between BitcoinStarter and Lighthouse is decentralization.  But then again you still have to trust the project is legit and there is no middle person between Lighthouse to do that.

Not credited, and probably irrelevant, as they likely didn't change their name after January 3rd, 2009 (bitcoin genesis block).

Wow, i respect your decision...

But do you know those guys who make a tattoo of their girlfriend just to find out that there's an even better woman on the planet they will love in future?

I was hyped about bitcoin, too the last years until I found there is "Gridcoin" which provides real value by not wasting electricity but putting it into scientific projects. Now, if i had tattoed "Satoshi" or "Bitcoin" on my belly, today would be the day I would laser it just to make a new tattoo with "Gridcoin" on it. The same goes for your name.

Think about it Smiley But however, this is a creative idea  Smiley

why you need change your name ? respect your parents.

There are some parents that want to name their baby girl Satoshi Bitcoin... These acts should be forbidden somehow.

I wouldn't want to be called AMIGA or Z80 just because my parents liked computers.

yes, the parents should thinking what happen if the name will be out to date. I mean what happen if in 10 years bitcoin / satoshi no longer exist, every years we got new stuff and technology coming in.


Well, Satoshi is a real Japanese name, so I don't see any problem with the hype fading away.

An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable.

It's not about hype for me, but the sponsor(s) are free to use this project for their own hype. Middle names are rarely revealed in the US and as I said in the OP, S is already my middle initial. As I have a Japanese affinity, even if bitcoin goes to hell, Japan won't simultaneously do the same, or erase all the good memories I have.

Exactly. Satoshi is a pretty generic name too. It would be explicitly bitcoin-related if I wanted to change my middle name to Nakamoto-Satoshi.

My parents have called me by new name since 2008.

With a first name, maybe I can help you! Roll Eyes

I don't think it would be appropriate to have a Japanese first name if you're not the least bit Japanese.

bump

I just came across this and it sounds bizarre but amazing.

My suggestion is that you create a fundraiser on one of the bitcoin fundraising websites? I came across one but I forgot what it was. Anyways try this: bitcoinchipin.com. Never used it, but typed in bitcoin fundraiser and this was the top answer.

Good luck and I'll be following this!
