Depends on the reason
I wouldn't really mind it but I also wouldn't want it to be anything official. Mayeb something she used on a mission or other rare occasion.
I don't want to see her at the DMV taking a driver's test or anything like that.
Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Constantine, Earth-2, Suicide Squad, Phantom Stranger, Forever Evil, Rogues Rebellion, Arkham War, ARGUS, Iron Man & Unity. Trades: Saga, East of West & Lazarus.
To me the only way any amazons as a surname if she was originally from the man's world and kept her name. Technically Greek and Romans did have a identity cards but since the island pretty small no need. I always wondered what would happen if P.I was more the size of Japan then they would mostly need to keep up with the number of people.
Alternatively they could be named after their mother like Scandinavians did, so Diana would be; Diana Hippolytasdaughter or something like it.
Prince could just be her title, right? Being an all-female society, they don't really need a word for the son of a monarch, so "prince" has become almost interchangeable with "princess," except it's used in different contexts and placed after the name.

"... Act, that each tomorrow find us farther than today."
well, I don't know if they do but I was thinking what if the amazons lived in tribes and each tribe as a different name based on the leader of the tribes noble deed.
Surnames didn't exist but people of higher ranks would have nicknames.
The ancient Greeks didn't use surnames.
Kings and intellectual figures such as philosophers, often acquired nicknames (King Antigonos Monophthalmos, the ‘One Eyed’, Dio Chrysostom, the ‘golden mouthed’ i.e. eloquent)
An ancient Greek name was often followed by a patronymic (their father's name). Alcibiades Kleiniou - Alcibiades, son of Kleinias
When they traveled to other cities, ancient Greeks were also known by their place of origin: Pythagoras of Samos, for example.
Could the amazons go by the goddess alias or the noble deeds they have done

So Diana can go by Diana of Themyscira but what about the other amazons and Hippoltya. Diana is the only one called Diana of Themyscira. That why I think if the island was big enough the amazons lived in tribes and go by the tribes name.

In terms of id for Diana a state id in the man's world and maybe a few others but not a drivers id but it would be funny to see her drive but if you can fly a plane than you can drive a car right?
Different beasts altogether.if you can fly a plane than you can drive a car right?
Also, we don't know if Diana has an invisible plane in this new iteration.
