Using different names in legal documents

46 posts in this topic

A friend of mine who's Ghanaian uses the British translation of his name for his job in the city, he showed me his job card and everything, considering his bank account is a diff name and he still get paid no problem is that legal?

Also is it possible to use your mothers maiden name in place of your current surname without a legal name change?

Just queries no legal misdemeanor are afoot

Just trying to increase my job prospects

at work you can be called whatever you want, as long as the employers have got a record of your legit name on your passport or whatever.

Know 1 guy whos work id says TImmy and is on his letters and sh*t but his legit name is one of those oluwatimiosin alphabet names.

Your guy should be fine

My bank account is my actual birth name

and everything else except my driving license is in my forename (which is the name most people know me by and which pretty much everything else is in). When i've had cheques to cash there normally in my forename and they go through no problems.

That was the english translation, bit feminine though. My favourite one is 'Goodness'.
