We’re applying for our license next Friday and my graduation card is due (which will determine what name is on my BA as well as seating at graduation of the whole ~20 in my program) and I don’t know what order to put my name!
Here’s the background:
I currently am the equivalent of Caitlin Grace Larsen (I promise it sounds much better with the real names)
Larsen (or my equivelant) is very uncommon in the US, and my family has always been very big about our Norwegian Heritage
FH’s last name might as well be Smith (but is two syllable if that helps for order somehow?)
So do I do:
1. Caitlin/Grace Larsen/ Smith
2. Caitlin/ Grace/ Larsen Smith
3. Caitlin/ Larsen/ Smith
4. Caitlin/ Grace/ Smith and just tag in Larsen on applications and such
FH really wants me to be the first option so we would have the same name but at the same time, there are several other Caitlin Smith’s not only at my university but also in my very small field! I know I can officially go be “Caitlin Larsen Smith” but I feel weird including what would be the 2nd of my two middle names. I thought I had this all figured out but now I’m second guessing myself. Help!
