Ok, where exactly are we at with this?  You are still wanting to change your name to what exactly?

How much are you looking to raise?

Would a selfie at the courthouse with official paperwork be provided?  How open are you to letting the largest donor pick your middle name?

So many questions...

Same name change as in the PGP-signed OP. Middle name must be Satoshi; this is a Bitcoin Project Development.

I personally don't want to touch any funds or fundraising. If there was a single sponsor, they would pay directly to the required entities as outlined in the OP. Multiple sponsors, they pay to the project manager, legal counsel, or escrow, who'd then pay the required entities.

I'd be willing to participate in reasonable PR such as a posed photo with/without sponsor handshake at the courthouse, text-based interview for sponsor press releases.

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 ?

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:
source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alwin

German affinity? Not really, other than some DNA. Japanese affinity, absolutely, which is why I can't see regretting Satoshi as a middle name.
i think jonathan is nice name!! but it is your choice, i think changing your name is a fun idea, to satoshi is even more cool!
good luck!

Why don't you change your name to Satoshi Buttermoto?

It will actually be helpful in many ways.

By "Satoshi" everyone will start recalling at once about Bitcoins, and may make some puns.

Also "Buttermoto" will be useful in 2 ways... People will get to know that,

  • You are the one behind the account "TheButterZone".

  • Dealing anything with you would be as smooth as butter. Since your motto is always in conducting smooth transactions without any hiccups.

Let me know what you think about the new name : "Satoshi Buttermoto".

Well then, you might have this name: Alwin Satoshi Roe. This wouldn't make your name odd to anyone either.

BTW, have you got hold of a lawyer who is willing to do this for you at a cheaper service charge?

Good luck anyways. Wink

I've seen odder.

None of the fees in the OP are what a lawyer would charge - they're charged by the government and a local newspaper.

Since I'm still bumping it, that means nobody has sponsored my name change.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

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.

I do believe Transformers: Age of Extinction has someone named Satoshi in the cast.

When you finally manage to get this done share some photos from your licence or ID (ofc hide the other personal info & your pic)
and after a while another guy will come by to change his name to Bitcoin  Grin

Will do.

Any forward progress would have been added to the reserved post, #2.

Replies in bold.

You realy want to change your name into that one?

Yes.

Or is this just for drawing attention?

For the sponsor(s) of the name change, yes.

If you change your name that might bring you some administative issues and procedural problems but it may also impact your personal life.

It will make my life a lot easier after the paperwork is complete, never again having to write my longer birth name. And my middle initial, most commonly requested on paperwork, rather than the full middle name, will not change, as I noted in my OP.

Have you thought realy good about that. And what when you change your mind again? And in few years you probably will.
As my OP said, I've already been using Alwin since 2008; coming up on 8 years, on my birthday. It's long past time to make it official, and Satoshi as middle name is a perfect vehicle for me, to do so. Your arbitrary projections about my life are unwelcome.

Sig spam? Do not post in this topic again.
