I have never ever disliked my name (I love it, in fact), but after closing on a house today I realized how freaking long it is with 8 letters and 10 letters! If I were you, I would just sign first initial, middle initial, and last name. 8 and 15… yikes!

I have four legal names and people wonder why I am dropping my maiden name..

As of right now I do what ruby26 suggested. I sign A.L. Randomlastname. I will probably continue to do the same when I take FIs last name. Perhaps you could even go first initial, new last name? Play around with it some and see what you like best.

My signature is so sloppy that you can’t tell if I did the whole thing or not.

My suggestion is to do that ๐Ÿ™‚

@crayfish: Same here, it is more like a giant swoop that supposed to represent my entire name (also long). ๐Ÿ™‚

Over the years my signature has turned from a lovely one where you can read every letter to an incomprehensible squiggle that I call good enough.

Mine has also devolved into firstletter squiggle firstletter squiggle.  It helps.  Especially since my maiden and new last names start with the same letter. ๐Ÿ™‚  And I’m perpetually terrified I’ve misspelled my new (long) last name.  Problem solved!  The scrawl serves many purposes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I do first-initial-last-name, which shortens things to only seven letters.
