Last name change vent

Recommended Posts

This is really for my sister who got married last month...


She has always been called by her middle name as her first is the same as our mother's, so she decided once married, she would have that as her first name, our last as her middle and married name as last, so dropping her first given name altogether.


She began a new job soon after she returned from her honeymoon and her new boss said she should fill it the new employee paperwork with her new name since she was going to change it anyway. She has a marriage certificate, so her employee info and her new insurance has her 'new' name on it. She figured they knew what they were talking about, so she did it.


Today she went to have her name changed on her driver's license. She waited and waited, got up there and they said they could not change it to what she wanted.


Apparently since the 9/11 incident they are not allowed to have people change their middle name to their first and change their last name. Not sure I understand why, so maybe I missed a few details while listening to her rant ... so now she has to go to family court to get this all fixed! In the mean time, the only way she can have her employee paperwork changed is to have a notary be there when it is done!


She is very upset because she is still in the process of moving into her new home, starting a new job where she cannot take time off to get all of this fixed and the guy that advised her to do this in the first place is out for several weeks!


Oh, did I mention she is having to deal with all of this on her birthday too?

Sorry for rambling, but be advised to look into the specifics if you plan on a name change.

Hi Christine! Yes, she sent off to get her SSN changed, but it has not come back yet. If they DO change it, she still needs a court order to have it changed at the DMV.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
