@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.”

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.

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.
