I’ve been playing aroind with his last name, and I think the hardest part for me will be my new signature. It just seems unnatural to write it!

stefano101:  It’s been 11 months and sometimes when I am asked my name or go to sign things I write my maiden name LOL. My husband says he still does a double take when I get mail in my new name sometimes too haha

I don’t really like how my new last name sounds I can’t get used to it. I used to get annoyed at my one coworker who’s been calling me by that name since I got engaged. It’s been two months since we got married and I’m still trying to get used to it. People are also rude and make fun of it cuz it sounds like a not so nice word. I’m hoping I get used to it eventually.

I’m lucky I suppose! My Fi’s last name is my maiden last name! I always joke that I’ll hypenate… but I would never!! 🙂

Wedding is in a month. I was recently texting my friend who just got engaged about wedding planning and he said “Well, pretty soon you’ll be (first name) (new last name)” and my heart dropped. I hadn’t seen it written out before and promptly told him to never text that to me again haha (of course he proceeded to send it 5 more times). It’s just so weird.

Yesterday was my birthday and a friend texted me “This is your last birthday as a (current last name)!” and I wanted to cry lol. Plus, whenever anyone calls me future Mrs. ___ I automatically think of his mother and it wierds me out

stefano101:  I still stumble and I’m about 10 months in. I sometimes have to leave message for people I’m working with, and fudge my name some as it’s not something I say all the time.

misstomrs022017:  Ha, this happened to my aunt and uncle… as well as DH’s parents! However, I work with a gal whose last name is Petersen, and she wants to meet a guy with the last name of Peterson, so she can be (Name) Petersen-Peterson. *lol*

I’ve also been married about 10 months and I’m still having trouble getting used to my name.  I have to think about it every time I say it or write it.

stefano101:  Lol I’ll be getting married in 3 weeks and I still tell him I like my last name better. It’s a very obvious sign of my ancestry and his, to me, just doesn’t sound like me either. I feel like our names would go best with MY last name and not his! 😛 But it’ll just take some getting used to. The more I use his last name to sign and have on my accounts and stuff, the faster – I think, I’ll get used to it and make it more mine rather than his!

I have to change my name in 2 countries (2 sets of docs.. fun!), and as of right now (~3 weeks in) I have my new passport from “over there”. I like my photo, but maaan… that last name is weird! 

I didn’t want to change my name again (second marriage), but it was really important to him, so I did. 

I didn’t chang emy signature since I got my first ID when I was 14, it’s a squigle anyway. However, a few days ago I particulary missed him and I changed my name on Facebook. I wasn’t going to do it until later this year when I change all local documents while getting citiznship… but oh well. He looked so happy when he asked me why I did it:)) 

Still, it’s so damn weird to see my profile. The only person to address me by the new name so far is the girl who changed my passport a week ago, and that’s about it. It wil lbe a damn long process getting used to it.
