You can adopt.

A name change does not give all the legal rights that an adoption gives.
In fact it basically gives NO legal rights related to family law and inheritance etc.

Really those are two different things, I name change is one thing, and in the adoption is another. If an adoption is what you want, that is a more complicated legal process but it will make the other person to complete legal relative of you,a name change will not do that.

A name change does not do ANYTHING as to legal rights and making one part of the family legally.
