Are you changing your name?

Recommended Posts

I think I may drop my middle name and use my maiden name and then use my FI last name. I hadn't really thought too much about it until right now so I guess I'll talk with him about it tonight to see what he thinks :)

I can't wait to change my last name! I'll be 32 when I get married, so you'd think I would be attached to my last name, but nope. I am just looking forward to not having to spell my last name every single time I give it to someone (FI's last name is much simpler than mine!).

That's what I was thinking of doing - keep my name professionally but take his name for everything else.. but then do you get into trouble with your SS card or working under a different name??

I'm defo not changing mine its the one i was born with and the one that i will keep lol I've been married before and I didn't change it then either lol its funny when i look at my divorce certificate its in my maiden name lol

 

FI couldn't care less lol there is argument however about what our kids will be called i keep putting my name last with a hyphen lol the way i look at it when the kid is born i'll be the one registering it so tough lmfao

 

I told my dad I wasn't changing my name and he said "that's my girl" lmao there are only 2 of us left so i feel i need to carry it on and anyway FI's surname is the one his mother changed anyway not his birth name so he can shut it lol

I am talking my FI last name.... For really no other reason then tradition... I love traditions...

I am a feminist and I feel that a last name does conceal my identity or make me less of a feminist by taking his name. I feel that having the option of not taking his name is what I like. Women have a choice to do and be who they want to be... Women have come a long way in this world and I think we show our independence and strength in a lot more ways then a last name!!!

I will be taking my fiance's last name for a few reasons - first, I also have a very long and complicated Italian last name...and right now, no one can pronounce my first OR last name...LOL! His last name is much simpler. Second, he is pretty traditional, and I know his feelings would really be hurt if I didn't. It's not hurting my feelings to take his name at all! Lastly, similar to what someone else said, by shedding my last name I feel like I'm shedding my bad family history. It's been a long 27 years of craziness and I'm ready to just move on!!

Hi,

 

I am keeping my name for the time being. My fiance and I have also been together for almost 9 years, but he thinks me keeping my name is fine-he wouldn't want to change his. I have had mixed reactions from people I have told, I like my name and don't see any reason to have to have a new one. Maybe if I have kids I will change it, but for now it will stay. Good luck!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always dreamed of what my new last name would be when I got married...but for some reason, as it finally starts to take reality, a part of me is sad to lose the name I've had for 28 years!

I guess I always thought it would have happened a lot sooner and I wouldn't be so attached.

But in the end I am going to change it, I too am big on traditions.

My FI did the same thing. I had toyed with the idea of not changing my name and then he starts telling me about his friend's wife who hasn't changed her name and how rude that is! I guess that means I'm changing it! LOL.

 

But seriously, I'm going to use both names at work. It's just too hard otherwise. I think part of me feels like to stay an independent woman, I need that to stay. I don't know.

 

It is funny how guys are so touchy about it.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
