Removed by SC

No just my first and last name. You don’t need to deedpoll or anything to drop the use of your middle name(s). When you renew your passport just tell them you don’t use them, and they won’t print them on your passport. They might want evidence like a bank statement.

Likewise if you sign up for a bank account, you can choose to omit your middle names even if they’re on your ID.

Fun fact, I tried to change my place of birth to the name of the city I was born in, rather than the administrative district (which is in that city). Didn’t work. (Not doubting your comment about names, though.)

(I have seen other people’s passports with the name of my city, which is why I tried - and yes, it was a frivolous exercise :slight_smile: )
