Hello,
Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem. I am not fully aware of what prior steps you have taken.

Does the passport have your current legal name on it?

Do you want to change your name legally or just have a different name on your passport?

Please explain more

If I can have a different name on my passport is fine but I could like to legally change my name

Thanks.

Thank you for the additional information.

You can only change the name on your passport once you legally change your name. If you want a passport to reflect a married name then after the marriage you must change your social security card, driver license or other state ID and then apply to have your passport changed. If you are not married and want to just change you name then you must petition a court to formally change your name then apply for a passport name change.
