    You are the petitioner.  That means you are submitting the petition.  It's YOUR petition.  Both are the same.

    Same name in both spots (assuming there is some other spot for you to put your 'new' name).

    .

    Your question belongs in Politics & Government>Law & Ethics as it's currently in Yahoo Products>Yahoo Answers and not applicable to this subcategory, which is for questions about how YA works and the rules here (and thus decreases your chances of getting many useful answers).

    Moving your question can be done by clicking Edit (pencil icon for mobile)>Edit category just beneath your question, then selecting the category that's appropriate for the topic.

    Birth name. That's your name until the petition is reviewed and granted.
