@Steampunk Angel:  Guilttttyyyy! I’ve got loads of time before I’ll offically be changing my last name, but I still like to practice it every so often. Like if I’m writing something and get distracted, I’ll start doodling it. Haha. I’m such a 9th grader πŸ˜‰

@CarolinaCola:  I totally feel the same way when I do this. Thing is, once you change your name, it will be hard to break the habit of signing your old name. I just think of it as practice so I don’t have to void checks in the future. Laughing

I’m planning on taking my FI’s name and practicing writing it SUCKS!!!  Lol!  It took me YEARS to perfect my current signature and it is SEXY if I do say so myself.  Even others have commented on how cool my signature is.  Now I’m dealing with all new letters and it’s hard.  Lol.  Doesn’t look as cool yet but I’m hoping it will with time.

The great thing about having a completely illegible signature is that I didn’t have to change it because no one can tell whether it says his name or not!  πŸ˜€

I, too, have stared practicing. It’s very difficult! It has letters I never write in cursive [since the only time I do is for my signature]. I have plenty of time to practice and perfect it, but I have a feeling it will be like when you write the previous year on everything for a few weeks after the new year. I’ll have to get used to it.

I haven’t done this yet.  I’ll have to change mine because there’s things at work that I have to sign dealing with patients.  Cool beans!

I have done this ALOT! When talking on the phone mostly, on my notepad. My Fiance thinks it’s cute and we giggle.

GUILTY! I started practicing mine just after we got engaged. I HATE my current signature so I am pretty excited to adopt a new one πŸ™‚

I was just doing this last week!  It’s tough, because I actually sign my name using my initials (JLS) all connected and it looks and flows so well.  I’ll be changing it to JLV….it’s just not the same!  I’ve practiced it with the last name spelled out as well.  I guess it will take some getting used to (and some more time, because he has a really frigging long last name)!

My current signature is a big scribble…I’m going to have to practice my new signature to get out of that habit, haha.

I’m guilty of practicing as well…and I am just like PPs who practiced even before the engagement.  I’ve always been a big fan of “married name doodling”. I like my new name, but it sure doesn’t feel natural yet, saying it or writing it.  I’m sure it will come with time though.  πŸ™‚
