has anyone undergone a legal name change? I'm considering changing my middle name, and i'm curious about what the process entails. I've done a bit of googling, but haven't found much, and was hoping to get some personal accounts from people who have gone through the process themselves.

I had my last name changed back to my maiden name after divorce many many years ago. I had to go to the court, file , had to post a notice in a paper, court has to make sure you aren't doing this to avoid something bad, it was time and paying for the ad in the newspaper, and court costs. It may differ state to state, but it is probably just as basic.
