    Changing my name?!?!

    Advertisements
    When DB and I get married, (we're hoping next summer after TBS), I'm not sure what to do.

    Do I eliminate my middle name and replace that with my current last name?

    Or do I eliminate my current last name and keep my middle name?

    ex.--

    Amanda L H*** (current name)

    Amanda H*** K*******

    or

    Amanda L K*******

    I'm thinking to eliminate my middle name, because i like the sound of my last name and his together, but HATE the idea of a hyphen.


    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but it was just something that came to me...

    It's all about how you want to do it. I personally eliminated my middle name and took on my maiden name as my middle name. But there is no law stating you have to do it one way or another, do what you feel you would like.

    I think keeping your maiden name as your middle name is awesome! Do whatever you want, it's YOUR name!!

    I was was thinking about taking my maiden name as my middle name when I got married but DH said he likes my middle name and thought I should keep it. Made that decision easy for me

    You're pretty much free to do whatever you want with your name!

    I got married 6 months ago and still havent changed my name but I'm going to do it when DH comes home. My middle name is Lee-Dawn so I'm not going to hyphenate my last name, and I don't want to drop my middle name as I obviously go by half of it, and my first name is what all my legal contacts (dentist, banks, etc) know me by and I don't totally want to rearrange my name. I also don't want to totally abandon my maiden name. So I decided I'll take his last name legally and socially, then go by my maiden name professionally.

    Such a pain.


    Awaiting the arrival of baby Andrew

    Hmmm....I am not keeping my last name. Because I am tired of it. So keeping my first and middle name, and then taking his last name.
    But either way Amanda is GOOD!!!

    I'll for sure be taking on my current last name as my married middle name, because my current middle name starts with a B and DB's last name starts with a B. But my current last name and his last name sound soooo perfect together!
