A Ministry of Defence spokesman has said:
The MoD acknowledges the lifting of the anonymity order in respect of Marine A.
We presented our security concerns in open court, and an independent legal process has now concluded; we respect the decision of the court.
Marine Alexander Wayne Blackman, convicted of murdering an Afghan insurgent, comes from Taunton and was based in Plymouth.
Two Royal Marines who were acquitted by a court martial over the death of an Afghan insurgent should be named, judges have ruled.
However, their identities will not be released pending a possible move by their lawyers to take the issue on to the Supreme Court, the UK's highest court.
A judge has ruled that the anonymity of the Royal Marine convicted of murdering a seriously injured Afghan insurgent can be lifted.
The commando, known as Marine A during the court martial, has been named as Sergeant Alexander Wayne Blackman.
Two other servicemen who were acquitted, known as Marines B and C, can also be named, the judges ruled.
The question of whether two Royal Marines, against whom charges were discontinued, should be named will be the subject of a further hearing, judges have said.
Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, sitting with Mr Justice Tugendhat and Mr Justice Holroyde in London, said Marine A, who was convicted of murdering an Afghan insurgent, should be publicly named along with two servicemen who were acquitted by a court martial.
