I changed my son's name when he was a toddler. Can he ever find out that I changed his name now that he is 18?

So why weren't you honest with him to begin with?

Short answer? He's already found out. YOu need to tell him why, and answer (truthfully) any questions he may have.

If he goes to the Social Security office near him he can find out any information changed on that.

Well he is suspicious about it because he requested a birth certificate from the DOH and my last name is different than his on it.

He probably won't find out unless he saw old papers that say he got his name changed, or if he had his suspicions and researched about it. I recommend just telling him about it, because if he found out, he'd probably feel betrayed. Also, what is the reasoning for changing his name?
