Married Chicas - what is your new name???

Recommended Posts

I am sooo traditional!!!

 

i just moved last to middle and took his name (legally). My email address finally changed and work and it is sooooo weird looking. I feel so much better that i am not the only one adjusting!! lol.

 

i have A LOT of friends that hyphenated! i was definitely the odd one. MY SIL hyphenated and now wished she just would have kept her maiden name. all of that prompted me to post.

 

the other thing i thought about too - was that i wanted to have the same last name as my children (when and if that day should come). i know i know, sooo cheesy.

Did anyone who took their hubbys LN, keep their middle namehuh.gif Oddly enough, that was what i was most sad about. My first and middle name are after my parents, and i have three brothers, so i though about keeping my middle,..... but then i just went all traditional.

I just added my husbands name to my name when we got married.  So now I have a first, a middle, and two last names, no hyphen.  Both of our last names are short, I didn't want to lose my last name completely, so professionally and legally I go by my first name, my last name and his last name.  Personally, I sign just his last name.

I think I will keep my full name and just add his on to the end. I do know a couple that took both last names hers first then his. I thought that was kind of cool too.

I will definitely be taking his name. My surname is already hyphenated (thanks great grandparents!) and it's a real pain. I can't wait to just have one surname!

I was so happy to get rid of my last name. Not that I am not proud of my family or anything like that.. but I consider it an honor to follow in this tradition. I am happy to take his last name.. and mine was long and no one seemed to know how to spell or say it.. ever! lol

 

And it is important that I have the same last name as my future kids!

I will be keeping my full name and adding his last name to mine.  I don't want to lose my family name.  I don't think many traditions related to marriage are practical anymore, so I am doing what makes me happy.  I wouldn't change my name at all but I want to have the same last name as my future children.  cheesy.gif

I will be taking my Hubbies last name. I already have 2 middle names and couldn't imagine hyphenating. The funny thing is I'm considering removing one of my middle names while I'm doing the legal name change stuff, so I will have even LESS names! I will miss my last name, but just want to keep things simple and traditional.

This has been a sore spot for my FI and I. I have always wanted to hyphenate my name but he thinks I should just take his name. Its important to me to keep my family name. I don't have a middle name so we've made the compromise that my last name will become my middle name and I will take his last name.
