Birth certificate name change

It's petty, but I want to change the spelling of my name, and I'm willing to go any end to do it, how do I legally go about this? What documents do I need and where should I go? It would be of great help.

I believe you need to inquire this from the department of persons registrations. They'll direct you in the correct path.

Call 1919 and get the exact details from the government information center.

It's not petty, it's your name. As Malinthe said, call 1919 and see the process. It's not that difficult, I think some paperwork and putting a notice in the papers

You need to go to the divisional secretariat of where your birth certificate is registered, as it is shown in it. (probably on top right corner of the birth certificate, you can see the seal)
