Legal Name of a Person
A Legal Name is the name of a person as used in official dealings, especially with governments. Many musicians are known by an alias, and we refer to that as the PerformanceName.
- Note: Whether the DateOfBirth should be duplicated in the PerformanceName (aka DateOfBirthStyle) is one of the UnresolvedStyleIssues. --JohnCarter
What is the Legal Name?
The birth certificate is the usual place you will find a legal name. However, legal names can be changed at any time (eg by marriage, deed poll etc).
