How can I add a middle name to my baby's records?

Asked over 4 years ago - Allen, TX

When my baby was born, we couldn't decide on a middle name, and now we want to add one. How can we do that in the state of Texas?

    Answered . I agree with Teri! It's the easiest way to start. Both parents would need to sign to amend the original birth certificate.

    If they refuse, you would need to do a name change. It can be done but it costs $$ and takes awhile.
