    If you are an adult, you can change your name. You'll have to go to court to do that though. It's generally no big deal. What is a bigger deal is then providing proof of name change to everyone from the social security administration to the IRS to the department of motor vehicles to employer, vehicle/home title, passport etc. It's no small task. Also, keep in mind that your name will no longer match your birth certificate which may present some challenges in the future.

    That would be a really unfortunate thing to do. What does it matter if you agree about everything?

    If you are an adult you can legally change your name to what you want, if a child then BOTH your parents need to agree and they need to legally change your name for you

    If you are not a minor, yes. But if you want to punish your father, there are dozens of better ways.

    I don't know the laws in USA but in UK for a small fee (less than £20) anyone over 16 can legally change their name.

    Sure you can. Just go down to the court house and file the necessary paper work.
