Very nice!

For fun, I Googled it and came up with this:

"VALIS is a 1981 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick. The title is an acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System"

Pretty cool!

looks nice…how do you pronounce it?

Valees? ValISS?, Valish? Or something else?

Wow! How very cool.

Curious, what does his family think about it?  I took my husbands name, although I teased him he’d be taking mine.  (i like my last name- not common and italian, his is quite american "vanilla")  My family was quite surprised I didn’t move my last name to my middle- – it just didn’t sound right.

And I guess I’m a traditionalist at heart….who knew!

I like the name! LOL but it is a title of an old sci-fi book! I’m sorry about your FFIL  But it sounds like your FI is very supportive. Good luck!!

I dunno…sugary rocks…I know it wasn’t your idea….but I think it’s nice to take your husband’s name….it’s what’s been going on for a long time..way before you were around….it’s a tradition, but you are right it is a new day and age now….although just remember his dad may not be upset just because he may not like you…it is his family name…..and the family has every right to voice their opinions…good or bad….a marriage is a union of not just 2 ppl, but their families as well……this is just my opinion….
