ohdarling :  Oh wow you’re good. I don’t think I will update my name at work. Just because I see so many aspects of the business, and I have only been here about 6 weeks (getting married next month), and I don’t want to confuse people. 

As for my signature – my current one is such a pain because the letters don’t flow nicely in cursive. But my new one will. So keen to start signing with it!

Lol. My work also updated without my checking in, but four years later I still have a coworker who forgets occasionally. For whatever reason, I caught onto my new signature immediately, but had to use both for awhile because my professional license didn’t change until it came up for renewal. I wasn’t going to give them a dime beforehand to print me a new sheet of paper.

My soonish to be last name starts with an F and I cannot seem to get a cursive F down. Plus they look too similar to how I make my T for my first name.

I hand addressed all of our save the dates in cursive and since my husband’s side is all men they all have what became my new last name so I got good practice! I had to look up how to do a capital cursive S though!

I didn’t practice ahead of time and was so lost once I had to do it for the first time! It was then that I realized my first and last name are only different by 2 letters – for example Ashley Ashlyn. So now I just sign my first and last the exact same way lol.

I actually don’t plan on changing my signature. It’s almost completely illegible anyway (basically my first 2 initials and then a squiggly line) so I don’t really see the need to change. My first 2 initials aren’t changing so it won’t look much different anyway.

Aslo, I kind of like the idea that it will be a sort of secret connection to my maiden name.

I changed my name but not my signature.  It’s on everything- stuff that

My maiden name signature was so childish I couldn’t wait to change it. 

I did practice it loads though before hand as I changed my passport in advance so needed it for that. Also my married name has a hyphen and I had to work out how that would happen.

Lol I practiced some ahead of time. I pretty much write the first letter of my name and then write out his last name. I make the capitalized letters kind of large and the other tall letters are tall. Everything else is pretty much a scribble. It’s pretty fun to have to come up with a new signature.

I didn’t change my signature. Well, my signature isn’t really text, anyway, so it doesn’t contain my maiden name. đŸ˜›

I sign my name regularly for work so when I switched my name I would print multiple copies of document signature pages bc I’d mess it up. Took a couple weeks for me before  it became second nature.

I hated my old signature, it was just an illegible scribble. I was quite happy with the idea that I could change it and find something a bit nicer, but now it’s still just a slightly different illegible scribble…

sbl99 :  If your only hestitation is confusion, don’t worry! I was at my job for two months before I got married and I had to change my name with work since I changed it legally (otherwise my paycheck and benefits, etc. were in the wrong name). Most people catch on very quickly. A few got confused and emailed me something like, “sorry, I meant to send this to a different person” and I was able to respond and explain.
