I don't know whether to keep my last name or take my FH's last name!
- For one, I LIKE my last name - I've had it for 24 years, it suits me, and it's mine, ya know?? It's just a part of who I am!
- Secondly, I don't like the sound of his last name with my first name - it just sounds weird.
- Thirdly, hyphenating our two names just sounds ridiculous.
-And last, but not least, his last name doesn't even mean anything to him (according to him!). He knows no one on his dad's side of the family and his dad hasn't been a part of his life since he was young and he has no desire to welcome his dad back into his life.
He says it wouldn't offend him if I didn't take his last name, but I think I'd end up feeling really guilty about it. Help me girls! I have a month to make up my mind!! What would you do? :
I can't wait to be Mrs. Green! It's so easy to spell and pronounce compared to my current last name. Although it does sound a lil weird cuz I'm not used to it.

yup i decided that i'm going to take his last name but keep mine as a middle name just like a lot of you suggested - thanks so much for that - i think it was a really good compromise
i already started filling out my name change form!!

Anyway, what I mean is that my name is Jill, I've always wished it was Jillian, so I could choose to go by either one. FI thinks I'm nuts, he's like I'll call you Jillian if you want me to, but I've been thinking of changing that at the same time, does that seem strange??

I didn't even know there were name changes forms. Where do you get these forms melissa? How long do they take to process? AHH just what i need - more stinkin' paperwork!

For me (I am sure it's different in CAN) there are a crap load of forms - basically something different for every place you have to change your name (DMV, passport, credit cards, frequent flyer accounts, hotel accounts, financial institutions, job, etc.). Which is why I thought about not changing my at all this time (I've been married before) - but FI didn't love that idea!
