Dom name is the formal name that a person has given themselves.
For many people, the “name” of a place is the physical address or the street name. This name is then attached to the name of the place.
For the most part, the same rule applies to dom names. You may not be able to change your name simply by getting a new birth certificate. The name of a place is the physical address. But you can change your name by getting a new birth certificate or an abridged and altered Certificate of Live Birth.
Once you have a new dom name, you can legally change it to anything you want. So you could change your name from “Nassau” to “New York”. You can also change your name in a place from “New York” to “Nassau”. You just can’t change it to anything else if you are born in a place without a dom name.
For example, if you move to a place with a new dom name, you can legally change it to something else. So if you were born in New York, you could change your name to something else. You are also permitted to change your name to something else if you have had a child with someone who has had a previous name change. In fact, you are permitted to change it to something else as long as you have never had a child with that previous person.
In the case of the USA, we have a lot of ways to change your name. The most popular option is to start your own company. You would receive a certificate from the government stating that your company is a legal entity and that your name is legally changed into something else if you die. You could even go so far as to get a birth certificate showing that you are not the person you have always thought yourself to be. This is a popular option in many countries.
In the US the government can change the name of a person without the person’s permission as long as the person is over the age of 18. This was done in the 1990s by a group called the Coalition for Cultural Freedom (CCF). The CCF used this power to force the government to remove people’s names from books written by dissidents (the first books they used were a couple of memoirs written by Fidel Castro).
As most of us can attest, such a thing is not done with great frequency. In this case, the CCF decided to use the power to force the government to change the names of people in books they created. They didn’t want people to name their children “Kiki”, “Zoe”, or “Zoey”. Instead of using the power to change names, the CCF decided that they wanted to change names to things that were more relevant to the books they were reading.
Well that sounded a little extreme even to me, but it is a little extreme to me. If the CCF is actually trying to change names in a public document, it seems like they are doing a pretty good job of it. If not, it is probably just some way for them to make sure they arent getting sued by a bunch of people who think they are being named after a certain person.
I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it appears that the names of the most powerful individuals in the world are changing based on what the CCF thinks is most relevant. It seems like a pretty good way for the organization to control what people think of them.
