Can I Keep My Maiden Name at Work?

If you've created a good professional reputation you may not want to be disconnected from it by changing names. This is common for academics, journalists, entertainers, business owners and anyone who relies on referrals for business. 

When you change names from marriage, you only assume your husband's surname and don't denounce your right to be known by your maiden name. This means you can be known by your maiden name at any time no matter what your reason. In this instance you can still go ahead and change your name on your passport, drivers licence and all other documents whilst having a different name at work or with associates. 

Tips

  • If you decide to change names, it is best to have all your records and ID consistently under the one name or else you may have problems proving identity.
  • If you keep your maiden name at work, but change names everywhere else, ensure you tell work if your bank records are changed and, if you travel for work, the name on your passport has changed.
