My Fiance says his name is ridiculous too and he wouldn’t mind if I wanted to keep my surname. His surname is a bit of a silly name (it’s not very surname-y, it sounds funny) but I think it sounds good with my first name. Better than my name anyway in my opinion haha.

I think two “first names” as surnames is really impactful. Surnames like David, Michael, Kelly or Kevin. And rhyming names, like Lauren Warren, amuse me…. and I think it’s kind of in a “good” amuse way! I’m DYING to know what your SOs name is though haha

I heard this from the other side. My grandmothers maiden name was Gloria Grando. What an awesome name! Sounds like a 1940’s movie star, perfect for her prime. And she was beautiful back in her day. She was a model.  She married to a boring name. That could be another reason I am looking forward to ditching the same last name.

I got a nice last name, so we won’t have any trouble for naming.

Like many people from my native Argentina, I have an Italian last name. It’s the Italian version of Bartlett, nothing crazy, but I have to spell it ALL the time, and still many times I get letters and bills with my last name misspelled. I can’t wait to marry and change it to somthing people over here will know how to spell. My first name is quite international anyway so goes well with both my maiden and married surnames.

My 3 letter middle name is already also the second syllable of my first name. My fiances surname starts with the same 3 letters. Think ….lee…. Lee Lee…. it sounds ridiculous and means my name is nearly entirely made up of the same two letters when i change it.

My boyfriend’s surname is double barrelled and the second part is always spelt or pronounced wrong. That would drive me mad. He doesn’t like my name with his surname anyway so is considering taking my last name. His name with my last name sounds awesome.

FutureMrsHitBee:  I really feel for you and have to giggle, too. My first name frequently gets mispronounced or mistaken, and my last name is that of a celebrity, so each and every time I speak to a sales rep, meet new friends, buy a burger or whatever, get asked “Any relation?” and sooo goes on my nerves. Worst case is when they shout first and last name out REAL loud, with first name butchered, at doctor’s offices and everyone looks up and stares and I am always mortified. There was a time 15 years ago when I found it all exciting, as was so new, lol. But not anymore. >3

Good for you!!! I come from Germany way back and it’s very common there to do the same. My best Gf there is a Kiwi and her German hubby took her last name. My sisters all married on different continents, too, and the middle one has a very unfortunate last name from her hubby. Let’s just say there’s a word in it which spams both their inbox with unsolicited porn stuff non stop. Had never thought of it as the first syllable is normal until she shared that and now wish I could unhear that conversation 🙂
