Of course!

Exaggerated example: if my parents were just a holes who hated me and they gave me a dumb name like hotdog, I wouldn't want to be called hotdog my entire life, I'd want to change it to a better name. Just saying.

Of course. And the obvious reason is freedom of choice, but let's also point out the scenarios of:

a) If your parents were complete idiots who made a terrible choice for you. (such as a girl named Kotex, or a boy named Satan)

b) If a distant family member does something horrid which makes your last name stained forever. (Hitler)

c) Going into hiding

d) Gender reassigned

e) Marriage combined names

That is within your rights.

In fact, maybe women will think to insert you into their private places. Pretty clever Tom, er I mean Kotex.

Do you see the consequences of many people changing names from time to time just because they're bored with it? but I do believe that a name can be changed only once for a particular person, so as to respect his/her freedom..

Side: Heck no!
