Has anyone out there changed their FIRST name at the same time as they changed their last name? Ladies not doing the name change, obviously this doesn’t apply to you–but I’m thinking, since I’ve hated my first name all my life…AND since saying it with FI’s last name makes it sound like all one word…now might be as good a time as any to just change it altogether.
Anyone have experience with this? Did you regret it, or have you been happy with the results?

I’ve never heard of that! Would you be changing it to something that you go by now-just making it legal?

How to legally change your name and the restrictions around changing your name when you get married vary by state; I’m not familiar with OK laws, but that might be a good place to start! 🙂
Do you have a name in mind to change to, like a nickname you’ve been called or something?

@ddw:Nope, starting completely from scratch. But my name is not one that ages well, unfortunately, or else I’d just leave it and learn to deal.
