6. Yep.

And until relatively recently, it was quite easy for people to simply start using a new name, without bothering with a formal name change. The most obvious is example is women taking their husband's surname at marriage. No formal paperwork needed, the DMV and SS readily allowed such changes, and multiple ones at that for women who married more than once. And people were very casual about putting nicknames on legal paperwork. Not a problem until this Real ID nonsense.
