I think I’m pretty neutral about it. My maiden name starts with a “W” and I always hated being at the end of the alphabet in school. It doesn’t matter so much as an adult, but I still have to spell it for most everyone. It’s the middle name of a famous poet…
I’ll be going from 9 letters and two syllables down to 5 letters and one syllable. His last name starts with “P” and he shares it with a common video game character, and I’ve already had people make a joke about it to me. I just stare at them blankly and say “I don’t play video games.” Ha!
What I really can’t decide on is whether or not to make my new middle name my maiden name. I LOVE my middle name now, it’s a very Portuguese surname and I’d hate to give it up.
