wales has no particular reputation at present
maiden name

Is there a legal beagle out there who can answer this please:
I am Swiss but through marriage(now divorced) have an english name.
Can I just use my Swiss maiden name when I return to Switzerland or do I have to get a document, perhaps a deed poll in England, prior to returning?
I have searched the net but can't find anything!
All help greatly appreciated, thanks.

Well, until some learned lawyer comes on-line .... in the meantime ...... I have noticed that all the married ladies in my family here (the Swiss side) all use their maiden names hyphernated to their married names.

... He is Herr XYZ, and she is Frau MaidenName-XYZ .... Presumably one may just drop the married part?
