    I had to change it since I changed my name.  Plus it has changed since I first changed my name to now.  At first, I wasn’t sure how to write my name so the signature on my driver’s license is completely different than how I sign now.

    I’ve been practicing my new signature like crazy whenever I get a chance (since my last name will be changing).  I feel like I’m in middle school again, writing my signature in my notebook with the last name of my latest crush!

    I changed my name, so my signature changed as well.  But since I’ve always just scribbled my signature to begin with, I don’t think anyone can tell that something’s changed!

    I had to practice my new signature a lot before it turned out looking nice!

    I did change my signature, but sometimes I forget, so my last name ends up being a mix of my maiden name and his last name, lol.

    My husband works in credit and accounting, and tells me you don’t have to change your sig if you don’t want to!  He said that an “X” is even a legal sig.  I’m not changing mine!

    I changed my name but I did not change my signature.  My signature is my first initial and a scribled version of my maiden name, but it’s how I’ve always signed my name.  Hasn’t been an issue.

    I don’t understand how your signature could stay the same if you changed your name?

    @Azalea_Bee:  because it’s so scribbled you can’t read it anyway Smile

    But PP are right, you can sign anything you want on those electronic signature pads…I’ve seen people draw pictures before.

    @Azalea_Bee:  A “signature” isn’t really just your named signed in cursive.  It’s a representation of you.  An authentication.  I’ve always signed documents and paperwork a certain way and I will continue to do so, even though my last name is now different.  In all honesty, I don’t know when it would ever be an issue unless for some reason the authenticity of a document is in question.

    Doesn’t matter my last name, I have chicken scratch for a signature no matter what.
