- Wedding: October 2011
My parents gave me both of their names when I was born. So my full “Name” is Sally Suzy Last name1-last name 2. when I went to school I only needed to put last name 1. and have ever since. When my daughter was born since we where not married we did the same thing Little Salle Suzy Lastname1-Lastname2. Figuring that when school starts she would only go by Lastname1.
When we got married I thought I would just do the same. Legaly my name will be Lastname1-Lastname2 but most places (banks, schools, doctors) I only need to sign lastname1.Did I do it Right? I had a friend who said I did it backwards and should have put lastname2 as my middle name but I want to keep my middle name and I want to be the same as my daughter.
eeek i think this sounds confusing.
I was born Sally Suzy Smith-Johnson. Only went by Sally Suzy Smith.
Daughter was born and I added DH’s name so its Jessy Woody Lopez-Smith. But in school she only needs the Lopez (her dad’s, my husbands last “name”).
I did for our marriage license Sally Suzy Lopez-Smith. and I want to go by Lopez.
Did I do it right??? I am concerned now!
