I know you can skip the normal complicated court name change process with your wedding license to change your last name or hyphenate your last name. But I would like to take my husband’s last name, move my maiden name to my middle name, and make my first name and original middle name into a hyphenated first name. I hope this makes sense. Can I do this through the normal marriage name change process, or does that only work for last names?

Second this. Some clerks have FAQs on their websites with the answer, or you may be able to tell by just looking at a copy of the application. I know that in California, you have to fill out the application online before you can pick up your license in person, and one of the categories allows you to change any or all portions of your name.
