Delta's Name Change Types permitted
Not all name changes are equal, and understanding the various sorts permitted by Delta

Examples include correcting a misspelled surname, inserting a missing initial, and resolving
first and last name conflicts.
Additions/Removals
Sometimes life circumstances demand the modification of your travel ID. Delta enables you
to update your name to reflect the following changes:

simplified your documents, Delta can support these changes.
Adding a Hyphenated Surname: How Do I Combine Family Names After Marriage? Delta

one after divorce? Submit legal documents for a smooth updating.
Name Change Due to Court Order: Legal name changes due to adoption, gender
transition, or other court-mandated reasons are easily handled by Delta upon presentation of
the required legal documentation.

periods allows you to make more educated selections. Here's the breakdown:
