    I am a JR and very thankful that at some time between the 1930 and 1940 census my father a TN resident changed his middle name from a very odd name to a similar but normal version. In the 1930 - 1940 time frame would there have been a recognized procedure for making that change or is it likely that Dad just did it after which it became accepted as his legal name?
