For 42 years nobody has been able to pronounce my last name, no one. Now everybody can! Hooray!

Best Thing – it’s short and it doesn’t take a long to type out my email address on my Phone.

Worst – I’m always going to have to spell it for anyone to spell it correctly.

Best thing: I like it a lot better than my old last name. 

Worst thing: People mispronounce it a LOT and when they do it sounds like petite — and then people laugh because FI is 6’5″ and I’m 5’9″.

Best- Its close to the beginning of the alphabet and even a 5 year old could pronounce it


worst- people literally think I’m saying something else when I’m saying my name, even though its a totally common word!!

@ImaStarr:  Best: it’s not an actual word like my maiden name. Worst: I don’t think it sounds great with my first name.

For my future last name 😛

Best: I have 0 attatchement to my current last name. It means a father who hasn’t been around for a long time. My new last name will be the new life that FH will be starting together 😀

Worst: Going to have to get used to signing it, I like my signature! Will have to re-do my signature for all the stuff I have published in the gallery :/

The good: It goes well with my first name and its short and simple. My first name is Alexandra so it would be kind of a pain to have a long last name, too.

The bad: No one can pronounce it! Its four letters long and pronounced EXACTLY like it looks, yet it seems to boggle everyone’s mind. I don’t get it. Everyone asks me how to pronounce it – everyone. Also it sounds like it would be Polynesian or Hawaiian and people ask me about it all the time, “Is your husband Hawaiian?” haha. Really its Czech and when I tell people this they just look at me like I’m an idiot haha.

Best: It’s incredibly common and Latin, easy to pronounce and rolls off the tongue.

Worst: I now have the name of an extremely famous celebrity. Everyone who says my whole name always chuckles, asks me if I’m “the real one” and then proceeds to laugh some more. I’ve only had the name two years and it’s already gotten old, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Best: I’m just excited to take his name. 

Worst: My first last name and his last name have a lot of hard c/k sounds so I’m not a fan of how it sounds outloud.

best: it means ‘happy’ and I love that 🙂 I also like my three initials together.

worst: my full name sounds a lot like his aunt’s name because both of our first names start with ‘ch’ and are the same # of letters…

Best- its easy to pronounce and nobody can make punny jokes about it like my maiden name. 

Worst- there is like 900 different ways to spell it so I always have to spell it out. And also I got one of the most complicated spellings.

@ImaStarr:  Here I go!

Best things:

  • My new surname will be so much easier for people to spell and say.
  • My signature won’t be too hard to change (I can somehow make ‘S’ and ‘L’ look pretty similar if I do them swirly enough!).
  • I can finally call myself Mrs Hislastname!

Worst things:

  • As much as I can’t wait to take on his last name, there’s a slight twinge of guilt in the back of my mind in that there’s no one left to carry on the family name (it’s just my cousin and me – and we’re both women who’ve decided on taking on our husbands’ names).

Best: it’s easy to pronounce. After having lived with a last name that no one can pronounce, I’m looking forward to it.

Worst: it’s stupid, but my current last name starts with a B, my new last name will start with an R. I always liked being at the beginning of the alphabet in school and stuff.
