It came to my attention when I woke up, that if I want to submit my thesis under the correct name, I should get to change my legal name soon :blobsleepless:

I guess long thread incoming about me struggling with consulates and embassies and getting letters to reach me.

Good thing, they have a proper list of everything they need to change the first name.

And transposées.eu/ and wikitrans.co/ also have a good list of everything which is needed.

So they need a birth certificate less than 3 months old.

I wonder what takes the longest: getting an appointment in Berlin or getting the certificate to arrive by post in Germany?

Let's get the certificate first, then I can still beg the consulate for an appointment before it expires :flan_shrug:

I'm glad I can ask for the thing online

But uh, I don't think I know the full names of my parents :concern:

So I learned the changed name after marriage is not actually the official name, it's just the "usual name".
I was hesitating when they asked for my parent's official family name.

And: birth certificate, asked! :muscle_hmn_r2:

Got twice an automatic email saying my case has been manually closed and now I'm not sure what it means. They can't have already sent the paper by post, can they? :concern:

I already receive my birth certificate. So uh, I guess I need to quickly ask for an appointment in Berlin.
It's happening quicker than I expected, it's a bit scary.
