legal first name change

Surnames: McCarty
I have a male relative that was named Shirley R McCarty born about 1918 in Michigan, joined the Navy in California, got married then divorced. He lived in CA until 1952 but after that I can not find any more about him. I recently learned that he had his first name legally changed to Shaun but I don't know where or when he had that done. I found a Shawn McCarty who died in California having the same birth year but his SS# was issued from New Mexico.

Does anyone know where or how I can confirm that? Thank you for any help you can offer.

A legal name change would be in some sort of court records. Maybe google search the last name, court records, name change. You never know, you might get lucky. The record has to be out there somewhere.
