    I don’t think you need a solution to this… My late uncle had the same first and middle name because of weird Russian naming traditions getting mixed up. It’s pretty funny, but didn’t actually affect his life much, besides having to clarify once in awhile on forms.

    I don’t have any suggestions but just want to show my support!

    SO and I are going to change our last names together, we will both hyphenate to mylastname-hislastname

    People think it’s weird but I don’t care – do whats right for you.

    Try having the last name Watt. All baby names starting with a T are out! 

    Can you tell me what the name is? 

    I would change your middle and last names to be honest. If it’s important to your FI’s father I wouldn’t ask him to change his name. I secretly regret changing mine sometimes because I feel weirdly less close to my brother and father now I’m “not a [maiden name] anymore”

    I don’t think you should have to justify this to anyone- the bees on here or family members or friends. If you want to do it, do it. That’s all that matters.

    Although, if your first name is Ruby, I would stay away from the last name Raine as it sounds like a porn star. Ruby Raine. *cringe*

    I say just don’t have a middle name, take his and use your middle as your last, or make your last your middle and your middle you last if that makes sense? My Fiance and I are both taking my last name as middle name and his as our last and we both will have two middle names and one last.

    See now you’ve helped me more than I’ve helped you! I haven’t officially changed my names on documents so I might do that! It’s better than “Jane” anyway. πŸ˜‰

    Reuter (roy-ter) is a fairly common name but I’ve never seen the other spellings before! 

    I’ve got it! He can change HIS middle name to his old surname and you both take the new one, then you’ve both got both names. Boom, nailed it! πŸ˜‰

    I have nothing to add really but its so interesting!! I can see how it would be annoying with forms and whatnot, but you would rarely introduce yourself as First Middle Middle/Last  anyway so there wouldnt be much confusion. Its kind of a cool story πŸ™‚

    I do also understand wanting to change though. Ive mused with the idea of merging our last names if/when we ever marry because FIs name sounds wierd with mine haha.

    Interested to see what you decide πŸ™‚
