How much would it be to legially change my name?

My legal name is Tiffany and I absolutly HATE it. Im 14 so im a minor and I wanted to know how much it would cost for a minor who lives in Tennessee to change my name. Also how I would change it. My mom did give me concent to do it as long as I come up with the money myself. Oh and im going to change it to Ryder! (pronounced rider)

    Call your county court clerk's office and ask. You can not petition, but your parents can on your behalf. You will need permission from both parents. And they will probably have to appear in court. And the judge will have to approve.

    However, I suggest you wait until you are 18 and an adult. You can petition on your own. In the next four years, you may realize that Ryder is trendy and not necessarily the name you want to have for the rest of your life.

    And I love the name Tiffany. Much better than Ryder.
