I was under the impression that I could change my name to whatever I wanted. I chose to 'add on' my new last name, so essentially I have my first name, 2 middle names (middle and maiden), and last name.
The SSA seemed fine with this. I successfully changed my name there yesterday and then went to the DMV to try to finish up the process.
The woman working there said that I can't have 4 names, and that I would "have to" hyphenate my maiden and last if I wanted all 4. She also said the name has to exactly match my SS card so they couldn't just put initials or 3 of the 4 names, nothing.
So, can I really have just 4 names? Do I have to wait to get my damn SS card with the correct name before these people will believe me? Does anyone here have 4 names on their DL?
