Married Chicas - what is your new name???
Posted 14 May 2010 - 07:23 PM
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.

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 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.

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.
