At 2am, overworked and with nowhere near enough sleep, I just had an epiphany….
….. my middle name and my new last name will rhyme. Perfectly. I am COMPLETELY on the fence about it which is a unique opportunity to be an optimist and say that it’s awesome and halarious…. but I could also freak out about it.
My middle name is very unique (read strange) and it was my grandmother’s name. I like to use my middle initial professionally. So, I don’t know what the chances are that someone will read my name through, but aahh! Rhyming!!

@coounut: how adorably hilarious?! one of my close friend’s names rhymes and it’s adorably cute i think!! i bet yours is adorable and it is your grammy’s name so perhaps your children will give the name to their children.

I changed my name thinking my husband’s last name (Speyer) sounded way more regal than my maiden name (Ortland). I knew that most people mispronounce it spay-er, not spy-er, and that didn’t bother me. Somehow I always paired it in my head with my full name (Kathryn) and not with what I usually go by (Kat). You can see where that’s going.
It honestly wasn’t until after I’d committed to changing my name that I realized, to most people, I’d be “cat spayer.”

Now that it’s morning I keep running around telling my coworkers and they keep giggling. And pointing out that we’ve been dating for 10 years so why didn’t this dawn on me sooner? lol

Don’t worry. My new initals spell a dirty word that I’m sure a lot of people have realized by now haha. I just really liked the way my middle name and new last name sound together and didn’t want to have 2 middle names or last names.

My nickname-Terri-works great with my new last name but my first name-Teresa-has the same number of syllables and 3 of the same letters and kind of rhymes. It’s a mouthful to say.

Yeah, it’s going to be VERY interesting… because not only is my middle name very unique (read strange) but my new last name is also very unique (strange). I’ve never met another person with his last name, nor had I ever heard of it until I met him.
I hope it’ll be like “Hey, haha, that’s cute.” instead of “Hey, wait, can you repeat that?”

Coming from a lifelong name rhymer, I’m going to miss it when my name doesn’t just flow anymore. My middle name, Lynn, rhymes with my last name that ends in ‘son (but pronounced ‘sin). My new last name will end in ‘lli. It just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

For some reason this made me think about the part in the Wedding Singer where Julia is saying her married name and she says “I’m Julia Gulia!”
Seriously though, I have two friends with rhyming names (one first and last and the other middle and last) and it’s super cute 🙂

Ha ha! CP, that’s hilarious! If it helps any I made the “a” in (my mispronounced version of) Speyer longer and probably wouldn’t have thought of that. 😉

@Phedre – I was going to say the exact same thing! She’s crying in front of the mirror when she realizes she’s going to be Julia Gulia.
I think it’s cute! If you don’t…it’s your middle name anyway. I use my middle initial a lot, but not usually my middle name.
