A woman who added "Skywalker" as a middle name has been told by passport officials her signature infringes a trademark.
Laura Matthews, 29, changed her name by deed poll in 2008 "for a bit of a laugh".
She recently tried to renew her passport and amended her signature to "L. Skywalker".
The Home Office said it "will not recognise a change to a name which is subject to copyright or trademark".UK Passport Office Refused Over Name Trademark, Skywalker [bbc.co.uk]
She has been told she might have to submit a new passport form with her old signature, but would be able to keep her new name on the document.
There must be a few people worldwide called "Ronald MacDonald" (especially in Scotland)
