Hi I will try and help
In English law there is no actual mandatory need or requirement to change your name via deed poll. If you wish to be known as another name then you simply use that name and make yourself known to others. However for passport purposes and other legislative purposes the agencies often require a deed poll to prove a specific date your started using that name, so inevitably you will probably have to get a deed poll.
I hope this helps. If so please leave positive feedback so I get paid for my time. The question won't close and if you think of any follow up questions you can ask later
