@peachacid:  She doesn’t have a middle name  =o(

How about first, last, and wedding date or some other important number?

This is why I snatched up my will-be name already, not that my future last name is common or anything (in fact, Google search for exclusively that name brings up five results, two of which are census results, two are people search sites, and one is a Windows Live profile that won’t load).

What about firstname.firstletterofmaidenname.lastname? firstinitialmaideninitiallastname?

So if your name was Ana Hippopotamus, and your name is now Ana Savannah, it would be: ana.h.savannah, anahsavannah, or ahsavannah, a.h.savannah

@peachacid:  “what about first name, middle initial, last name?”

That’s what I had to do to get mine.  But since the OP doesn’t have a middle name, I’d suggest incorporating an initial from your maiden name.

I had to do my firstfullmiddlelast to get an address without the use of numbers. It’s kind of long, but it’s just my name, so it’s easy for folks to remember.

Ooh, just read you don’t have a middle name. Hmmm… that’s challenging. I know this is annoying, you could try mrs/msfirst.last? That at least avoids numbers…

I had the same problem. I thought firstname.middleinitial.lastname was cumbersome, so I think I’m going with firstnamelastnameweddingyear. No other ideas!

holy.. crap.. i didnt even THINK about this one!!  and gmail is blocked at work! so now i have to wait til i get home.. omg what if another person takes it between now and when i get home?! AHH

i second the idea of using an initial from your maiden name.  otherwise, maybe a number?  like 7? since you’re getting married 7/7?  or just add an x somewhere?  [email protected] or [email protected]

I created a new email for my married name, but still use my original email.  I just have gmail retrieve the emails that are sent to my new account.  Then inside gmail you can select who you want to send outgoing emails as.  So if you can get your desired email address through yahoo or someone else, you can have them retrieved to your original gmail account.  It saves from having to check multiple email accounts if you keep your old one active.

I had the same issue, and just added a 1 at the end.  Problem solved, and it’s still simple.

Did you try MSfirstnamelastname?  MRS is probably ok, too, unless you want to keep that tidbit to yourself for future employment searches, etc.  My husband has a nickname based on his last name, so I have one email that’s MRShisnickname (and his friends call me that!), and one that’s firstnamelastname (luckily it’s not a common name).  I use the name one for business, etc, and the other for all my spam.  I have something like 7 email address going to my iphone, I need to change that…

FYI, google disregards the dot in email addresses.  You can use it but gmail acts like it isn’t there.  So thebossofyou is the same as the.boss.of.you and th.ebossofyou.

So don’t bother checking different dot versions of the same addresses.

  • You could use parts of your first and/or last names. Like if you name is Shannon Miller you could use shanmill or millshan. 
  • Use your state name in there like TexasShannon, TXShannon or a placename like AtlanticShannon.

These would still be easy on the eye and work in a professional setting.
