You cannot change your daughter's name in the birth certificate now. However, you may change your daughter's name by a gazette notification, after due publication of the facts in newspaper and supported by an affidavit for the purpose of name change.

You have to approach the Government Gazatte for change of name. You have to submit application and documents with your passport size photo. It will take ten days. They will provide five copies of the magazine. That copy can be used as proof of change of name.
