I know of a woman who didn’t take her husbands last name because her first and his last name together sounds a lot like “dildo” when spoken aloud!

That’s a funny consideration! I did have a very serious ex once who we both agreed I wouldn’t take his name, if for no other reason than my first and his last together sounded completely like a porn star. 😉

I wish I had that excuse now! Actually his last name and mine are extremely similar (same starting letter, same number of syllables, and emphasis in the same places), so I need a better excuse. 🙂

If you are comfortable with your name between the two I think that sounds like a good compromise! I didn’t take my husband’s last name, so I would just say don’t change… but if you have always wanted to change your name, then I think its not that simple.

I have a friend in your situation, too. Her name and his name sound so stupid together, but when you say her name, her lsat then his last it sounds way better. Her three names are all short enough that this isn’t much of a mouthful, so I guess that is something to consider, too!

I think that I would…

I had a friend once who married someone whose last name was the same as her first name – and she took it! It was pretty entertaining.

I had an ex whose last name was Hyman and that certainly wasn’t happening. Luckily for me, that relationship wasn’t really ever happening either…

I am actually named after a lady whose first name rhymed with her husbands last – Think Paris Ferris!

And I always said that I would take his name as long as it doesn’t rhyme!

Thank goodness my name isn’t Tarten!

I’ve never thought I WOULDN’T take his name because, well, it’s perfect!

 

Maybe if his last name was Crapper…I knew a “Crapper” in school…and um, no thanks.
