@emmos:  A name change is a big thing to get used to! 🙂  My name is officially changed, but because I use my maiden name for all things work, I don’t actually hear my married name much, so almost 2 years later, it’s still weird to me.  I also haven’t really officially changed my signature to read as my married name – it’s so hard to write! 😛

@emmos:  Yea it definitely takes getting used to for sure but if you use it everyday it will become familiar before you know it.

I took my DH’s last name, but I also took my maiden name as my new middle name. My signature went from my first name, middle initial, and maiden name to my first and maiden names followed by my new last name. Since the majority of my signature is still the same, I didn’t feel like a completely new person, but it did take awhile for me to get used to writing my new last name neatly.

@emmos:  

I decided against changing my name – because mine is so special and unique and has to do with me heritage. But I have not closed the door completely (I’m not sure yet how I would feel if my children would have another name than mine).

So please let me know how things work out 🙂 Good luck!
