Re: Passport help!!!!

Actually it is worth checking. Changing your name for reasons other than marriage can be difficult in Switzerland (unless there has been a change in the law over the last 10 years or so) and there have been cases of the authorities objecting and preventing the name change if the reason wasn't deemed to be good enough (I can remember a case from 5 or 10 years ago about someone with a slavic name that wanted to change but was prevented)

You won't loose your citizenship - just potentially not able to use your desired name
