I totally understand!!!

 

You will find you think thru all that stuff when naming children as well.

I had really considered naming my daughter Olivia, but her initials would have been OLD and I couldn't bare it :)

@calgarybride2015 Hahaha.. it's funny how these things can affect us in these ways. If I have a boy one day I really want to name him "Porter", poor guy will be P.Yu .. but I feel like at that point P you will be a thing of the past that these new aged kids won't even find funny.. I hope. haha

Always love to hear why some change their name and not others? I always grew up hating my last name, so it was a no brainer for me HAHAH! If my children had my last name I wouldn't have changed it, but since they don't anyways it wasn't a big deal. It is a pain in the butt to change it and also costly! ugh! But you are right, saying husband, using your new last name, using your new signature, etc. is quite an adjustment.


I never wanted to change my last name, even before meeting Juan. My mind was made up pretty much since I was a teenager. I like my last name and the way I see it, if a man won't change his name why should I change mine. I know it's a silly argument haha but it makes sense in my head . I guess I don't have a super valid argument more than my last name being part of my identity and I want to keep that :). It's always personal preference I think.

Forsure... I just love to hear why people chose one way or another.  My sister has a male friend who took his wife's last name!!

You make a valid point.  With all the electronics and stuff these days, kids are in a totally different world!!!

In our culture the kids take the dads and the moms last name. So my kids will be named Aguilar Lopez, just like I am Lopez Bilbao and he is Aguilar Zapata. That way the kids always have both the parents' names :)

That's awesome! I had never heard of that before, only of guys who get really offended when women will not take their last name. Thankfully Juan left it up to me he said that it was my name and I should do what I wanted with it.

I think if I really hated my name I would change it as it would be the perfect excuse to do it :)

And your last names are soooo dreamy too!  (mine is far from dreamy lol).....

I'm not taking my FIs last name because growing up my mom never changed hers and we have the same profession-in science a lot of times women keep their maiden name. So it has just been engrained in me. I get why people change their names and it does seem easier/romantic ( also my name is hard to pronounce and my FIs is easy) but for me my name is part of "me". Although not going to lie, it's nice not having to jump through all the hoops to change it

My FI doesn't care ( if he did we'd have a problem, more on the principal of it all) and I told him the kids can have his last name but that means I get more pull picking their first name

@nadiakat17 I agree, I'm definitely happy that I don't have to go though all the trouble of changing everything haha. 

 

My mom never changed hers either, maybe that also has to do with my decision :)

Sometimes I wish I had the same as my kids but since it's more and more common not to, it's less hassle. Some 15 years ago my sister had to prove they were hers all the time. Upset her deeply

I didn't change my name when Doug and I got married. After coming out of a long very nasty marriage, I went back to my maiden name. I had been under someone else's thumb for so long it was like I needed to get back to point A. I spent 16 weeks in a program for women in abusive situations and realized that I needed to find me again. I didn't start to date for more than a year after the ex and I split but it took that long for me to be comfortable in my own skin again. I had to go back to liking being me. Believe me ladies, it's a lot of work. I think Doug might have been just a little disappointed, and I might still at some point change it. But even after as many years as we've been together (14 now) there is still the fear that something will go wrong so in some ways I think keeping my name is also a form of self protection lol  On top of that his last name is dutch and hard to pronounce so it's also easier to stick with mine!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
