I love writing my new last name!  Even though it’s longer (9 letters vs 5 letters for my maiden name) it’s much more flowy and has curvier letters than my maiden name so it’s prettier to write.

Yes, I’m weird. Wink

Ughh yes and I hate it!… It’s so long now and I really hate writing the letter “R”. 🙁

@renwoman:  I do! I mostly practice my professional signature with my credentials bc I have to sign things every day at work. It will certainly take some practice!

Ah I really need to too! New last name is a long one!

I’m kinda embarrassed to have the janitors or someone at work find a page of signatures though, it just looks odd!

@renwoman:  Omg I practice my new signature all the damn time. When my mind wanders, this is what I end up doing. There have been so many times that I’ve opened up my daybook with someone looking over my shoulder just to be faced with an entire page of signature scribbles.

Soooooo embarrassing.

I’m going to miss my last name… it’s a strange sounding Polish last name, so I always have to spell it out for people; however, my FI’s last name is a simple, common sounding word… but it’s spelled weird. So I guess I’ll never get away with an easily spelled last name!

@renwoman:  I never practiced it once and when I went to get my new drivers license I had to sign my new signiture and it looked terrible! It’s getting a lot better now but looks mostly like a big scribble because the letters in my new last name are super hard to write in cursive!

It comes really naturally to me, honestly.  I have only slipped up once since we got married so that’s a plus!

I’m using my upcoming name change as an excuse to completely revamp my signature.  Currently, it’s just perfectly legible cursive with little to no stylization.  I’d like something a little more unique.

Confession:  appearance-wise, I much prefer my maiden name to FI’s last name.  The change is going to take some getting used to 🙁

I’m still torn between hyphenating or not. If I hyphenate, his name squiggles in the opposite direction from my name, which is a bit of a jarring change, since my current signature has turned into a load of lazy loops that sort of look a bit like my name. I guess I just have to keep practising to get it smoother.

I went from a 2 sylable 6-letter last name to a 4 sylable 10-letter last name! I definitely practiced and ended up with a signature that consists of just my first initial coupled with my last name, whereas before I signed my whole name.

Chances are your new signature will develop over time, anyway, but practice will help make it a little easier (and is a fun throwback to middle school!)

@renwoman:  I have totally practised. I write a lot of letters for my job and sign my name on them and can’t wait to use my new name!

I still practise, and I’ve been married nearly 5 months! 🙂
