Can a Minor (under 21 years of age) execute a deed poll to change his name by himself?

No. For minors below 21 years of age, the Deed Poll must be executed by at least one parent. With effect from 1 June 2007, the consent of the other parent also has to be sought for the change of name unless the other parent has died or is uncontactable. It is recommended that both parents to sign the Deed Poll to avoid any complications, such as ICA’s refusal to accept the Deed Poll for certain reasons, or disputes between both parents.
