My new last name will be van Damme! Which is awesome because in my country, my fiance is currently the only one with it (it is more common in his home country though). My full name will become Alexandra van Damme. Laughing

I’ll be changing to a 9 letter name that starts with V, from a pretty common/known name that starts with N.

Yikes!

Going from an extremely well-known Irish name to a name with a letter that doesn’t exist in the Classical Latin alphabet (i.e. doesn’t exist in English, French, etc.). Fun.

I’m happy though; my name comes from a great-great-grandfather and doesn’t represent my nationality. At least now when people are surprised by my nationality given my name, I’ll be able to say that it’s my husband’s 😉

Nevermind, women can’t take their husband’s name here in Quebec 🙁 I plan to use his name socially, though.

@arathella: Ah Quebec.  You’ve got to love secularity raised to the level of religion, and, so it would seem, no one realzing the irony.  When my godmother’s mother (who I think is a widow, even) had to revert to her maiden name, she had gone by her married name for three times longer than she had had her maiden name in the first place.  My godmother (and, I presume, her mother) continues to use her married name socially.

@Duncan:  Totally weird. That law is classified as a gender equality law, which is almost insulting to women who WANT to take their husband’s name; it seems to insinuate that we are submissive. One of my employees is an immigrant and I respect her desire to continue using her husband’s name (like your godmother’s mother, she has used that name longer than her maiden name!), so I make an effort to separate internal from legal documents. But it’s a pain.

My last name will go from a very long Latin last name, to a shorter Latin last name. Snoooze, boring, no dramatic change. I’ll probbaly just end up tacking his last name onto mine and call it a day.

@arathella:  One could go through the process of a legal name change, but it seems rather a bother when, in the rest of the country, married women can use their married and maiden names interchangeably, at their discretion.

@beetee123:  I’m doing the exavt opposite of you… I’m going from a long, complicated ten letter last name (that no one can pronounce!) to a four letter, one syllable last name. I’m also moving from the back of the alphabet (S) to the front (D).
