Name Changed? Let the World Know through a Classified Newspaper Advertisement!


A name change is a major transformation in one’s life. It has become common for individuals to change their name owing to various reasons such as matrimony, maintaining the citizenship of a country, keeping ID proofs, astrology, etc. Such changes of name are required to be announced via a relevant post in a newspaper. Today, Change of Name advertisements are the most common category for classified advertising in newspapers across India.

Some vital features of such classified ads include:Name Change Ads

  • They are only published in the Classified format which includes both classified text and classified display.
  • Any change of name advertisement in a newspaper should be accompanied by a Notarized Affidavit duly signed by a Gazetted Officer testifying the change in your name.
  • The content of the ad must also include the complete address of the person whose name has been changed.
  • It is always better to publish Change of Name ads in newspapers with low ad rates as they are more of a necessity than a luxury or a promotional ad.
  • Also, these announcements should be published in at least 2 newspapers, of which one must be a regional or local newspaper.

A proper newspaper choice needs to be made, which depends on your circle of acquaintances and where the majority of them live and the language they speak. If a majority of them speak and understand only Bengali, there is no use of publishing in a leading English daily like The Times of India.
