Hi Karen,

I assume you are interested in name changes in the United States.  I highly recommend getting a copy of Kirsten Fermaglich's book, "A Rosenberg By Any Other Name".  New York University Press 2018.  The subtitle of the book is "A History Of Jewish Name Changing In America" and should answer most of your questions about "new" surnames.
