I takes a while to get used to. I can finally sign my last name without pausing, but I still cannot seem to change my initials. Whenever I initial anything at work i still put my old initials.

I experienced the same thing! “It’s hard!” What? Oh, crap….it is. So I’ve practiced here and there so I’ll be more comfortable by the time I get a new license.

It definitely takes a while to get used to. Writing your name on forms, signing your new name, saying your new name to people. I answer a phone with my first and last name every single day so I got used to it fairly quickly.

I hadn’t really practiced signing my new signature and was at the registrey office getting my new drivers license. I was standing in line and FREAKED out when I realized I had to sign!! I found an old receipt in my wallet and started signing as fast as I could while waiting. Needless to say the signature on my license looks like crap!!! I still kick myself for not practing before hand.

It’s strange at first, but you’ll get used to it.  When I got divorced I took my maiden name back (sort of unwillingly, but that’s a whole different story) and that was almost harder than getting used to the married name! 

Fiance actually MAKES me practice, it’s hilarious.  If I’m signing the check at a restaurant or whatever, he’ll ask me to practice on the back of my copy 🙂

I had to sign some paperwork for the job I’ll start after the wedding, so I was going to use my hyphenated married name.  I got totally tripped up in the middle, it was ridiculous. 

On a related note, have you ever tried to just sign your last name?  I can’t do it unless it immediately follows my first.  Fiance laughed at me, but then he couldn’t do it either!

I just realized after knowing I would marry Fiance for about a year and a half, and being engaged for a couple months, that I will have a new name. Like I always knew I would, but I never thought about it. I never tried writing it. 

So I was in the shower and started writing my name on the glass. I always handwrite my normal name but now I always handwrite my new name in the shower. I find it easy enough to do. 

But a signature is a whole new story..

It definitely takes a while to get used to! I struggled the first few times, but you’ll get it in no time!

On a related note, about 3 weeks before the wedding, I was so stressed out, and my mom was driving me crazy. I have a few vendors who I work very closely with here at work, and one of them sent me a picture frame with our names written out…Mr. & Mrs. D____. I totally started bawling as soon as I saw it. Just b/c it had been the first time that I had seen it written out, and it put so much in perspective for me. Such an awesome time to get a gift like that!

It’s one of the reasons that I haven’t changed my name yet.

I  must be the odd-ball out and be able to do it.  Then again, the only problem I had with my ex-husband’s name was learning how to spell it! LoL!

I can also sign my last name by itself without pause, as well as his last name without pause.  

erm… I’m also not changing my last name, so that kinda helps some, too, lol
