    Be upfront and don't be apologetic; say clearly, "I am changing my name, Travis does not exist anymore. My name is Marquise."

    Marquise? Seriously? They're doing you a favor. They're saving you from other people making fun of you behind your back. If you want people to call you by a different name make sure it's not laughable.

    At home write your name Marquise and leave it on your room door, fridge, windows and washing machine so everybody in the family gets the point. Reminder reminder...

    With friends send a courtesy email or text message to keep them informed and request to update their contact in their address book.

    When you meet them readily introduce yourself. It may take time but you will get there.

    Ask them. Some will and others won't. The change will be more effective with people who don't already know you.

    You'll have to correct everyone for a while until they learn it. Or you could wear a name tag that says "Hello, my name is Marquise."  You'll still have to correct everyone.

    You really can’t, it will just happen over time. They need to adapt to it
