The more posts I see by you, the more I think that you're a strange, strange guy. I do agree with/believe lots of what you say though.

How can he even consider naming himself that? I think he does some sport like pinball or something if that's a sport now.

Is it even possible to change names? In Germany you can only change names under special circumstances, e.g. if your last name was Hitler or something dishonourably funny.

If it's just for sponsoring, you don't need to change your name. An alias would suffice but it might not be excentric enough.

In America you can pretty quickly I think.

Patrick, if you are serious about applying for having really a new name registered, I doubt the Patent and Registration Office will grant it

.

"Valhalla" must be a very commonly used name for various things in Sweden. It has probably been registered for a dozen other different products, services and perhaps already as surname. And if it is strongly associated with a place or product, they will probably not accept it as a surname, also not if it can be interpreted as offending or embarrassing. Just like applying for the name Patrick Stockholm, Patrick Screwdriver, Patrick Mercedes, et cetera.

For other ideas of surname. Good luck.

Good idea, but there is never an umlaut on an e.
