    Or have you played with things like underscores or dashes?  Those look more professional than numbers, but still could help differentiate your address from existing ones.  If you’re using it for your work, you probably don’t want one that is super long, it will be harder for clients to remember.

    Personally, I’m only going to hyphen my last name, and plan to keep my e-mail addresses (personal and work) the same, but change my signature line to show my new name.

    what about Last.firstinitialmiddleinitial?

    so if your name was Jane Marie Doe your address would be [email protected]

    I agree about the random numbers. It’s definitely not professional.

    i have the same problem! uncommon last name now, but very common future last name. after playing around with options, i chose [email protected]. my first preference was for [email protected], but that was unavailable. i think too many periods (first.middleinitial.last) gets too confusing.

    Have you considering just changing your email signature, and how your name appears, but keeping your current email address?  If you’re having a lot of trouble finding something that works, that may be an option.

    In Gmail, you don’t have to worry about the periods.  You own all of the possible combinations with the periods.  Go ahead, try it out.  For example, I signed up with [email protected]  But an email addressed to [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected] all will come to me.  My preference is to have no periods, they are just unnecessary.

    What about some combination of the names and a one-word descriptor of whatever type of freelancing it is you do? [email protected] or [email protected]. Do you have a "company" name for yourself? Because you could use that as well. Unless this is going to be a personal email address too..

    I know what you mean!  My new last name will be very common.  My name is Andrea but I went with Ann for my email since I couldn’t find any combination with my inital or real first name for an email with the common last name.  Do you have any nicknames that aren’t necessarily unprofessional?

    I though going with [email protected] was a great idea… I’ve had it for over 2 years and HATE it! I can’t wait to get my married email going. It’s so hard to say a long email with lots of periods over the phone or when people are writting it down. The simpler the better! Good luck!
