    I’m one of those people that have considered keeping my name for professional reasons, but many events throughout my relationship have led me to decide to take his name. Plus, I have two complicated names… and although I take pride in my last name, he has a pretty awesome AND simple last name, so that sweetens the deal 😉

    I didn’t even think about practicing my signature!  What a great idea!

    I’ll be taking my FI name but potentially keeping my maiden name as a middle name. For me it’s a no brainer, when we become a family I want us all to have the same surname. 

    And to answer your title question: yes. But only for laughs when work is quiet haha.

    MissRustic:  A few days before we got married I sat down and began thinking of how I wanted my signature to look. It took about half a dozen times and I finally picked it out. But I didn’t start signing that until I got married

    The timing of our upcoming marriage before the completion of my training makes changing my last name more feasible professionally. I’m going to change my maiden name to my middle name too. I haven’t started practicing the signature, but I do say it in my head so I can get used to how it sounds.

    I’m taking his last name, even though I like mine better. It’s Smith so obviously the most common name in America. I will keep my middle name and we are naming our son my maiden name. I have been practicing my new signature for awhile and I cannot spell it right to save my life. I always skip a letter…

    I’ve been thinking about this so much recently. As much as I would like to have his last name, changing mine feels icky and like a betrayal of what I believe. Right now I’m planning to compromise by going by his last name socially but not legally changing things.
