    @jasmine: You’re lucky, I would love to have a boy’s name for my last name!

    I voted for like it.  I don’t hate the name, I just hate and NO ONE can ever say or spell it right.  At least with my maiden name people were more likely to pronounce it correctly.  I haven’t changed my name yet and talked about it more on the other thread, but if I do change it and keep the middle name my initials would be LMP…not loving limp as my initials.  But, right now it’s LMB…so limb isn’t that great either I guess.

    HAHAHA @Lillindy: I think it is so funny that you have thought about your initials like that. I have done the same thing. I thought I was the only one. I will be going from SLT (slut) to SLB (slob). I have some crappy initials haha. 🙂 I don’t mind his last name though. It makes me feel like royalty. (It is Buckingham).

    @hisMrs: Oh man, I shouldn’t complain about mine being limp if yours is slut, HAHA.  Heck yeah I’ve thought about it because you don’t want your initials spelling anything bad.  My FIL’s monogram (not initials) is APE, which I think is pretty funny!  I like your new last name, I would feel like royalty, too.

    I have always loved my own last name, it is kind of proper though. I really love my fiance’s last name, I think it flows better with my first and middle name, it just sounds prettier.

    I also love what it represents to take his last name. I think everyone is different though, I have a family member with the same last name as me, who loves it and doesn’t want to change it.

    I really like Mr. Q’s last name.  It’s one where you have to not only spell it out, but also use "V as in Victor, D as in David" type explanation.  It’s a little winded, but sounds nice with my first name!

    i dont have a problem with my fiances last name, per se.  i do have a problem because it is also his fathers and brothers last name, both of whom are misogynistic, abusive pigs (so it obviously represents bad feelings for me).  im hyphenating because my Fiance wants me to take his last name in some form.  that will leave me with a very long last name (7 letters hyphenated by 7 letters).  what do you ladies think of this?

    I’ll be glad to take my fiance’s last name.  Both of our names are ethnic and the same ethnicity but his is a little easier to pronounce and spell so I am looking forward to it!

    His name is shorter then mine so it will be easier. Since I’m going to be a teacher it will make it easier for my students!

    after i commented, i thought long and hard about this name changing business (again!).  despite the fact that i don’t like his father or brother’s actions, i should still take my fiance’s last name.  it would be much easier than hyphenating a 14 letter last name.  plus, my Fiance would be thrilled if i took his name.  after all, it’s him i’m marrying, not his brother or father.

    I just like it. Its shorter, but its easy for ppl to spell wrong or not understand what it is

    on the other hand, I love it because I love him and it reminds me that I am part of him and he is a part of me!

    I like it.  It is shorter, easier to spell, and I move up in alphabetical order (not like that really matters past grade school). I’m not particularly in love with the way it sounds with my first name. My maiden name and my first name just flow…not so much with his last name.  

    In the end, I love the thought of having it join my Fiance and I join together to start our own little family!

    I can’t say it right. And he laughs at me, And it’s embarassing.

    So it’s no surprise that I haven’t switched over from Andersen yet. 🙂

    I like Mr. PN’s last name. It is short and unique. My last name is very very common so I’m glad to have something that is more unique now. Although everyone does mispronounce it which I have never had before…

    I like my soon to be last name – I will enjoy saying "It’s wolf, like the animal"

    My maiden name is long and difficult for people to spell.
