I hear ya, I love my last name!  Its hard for me to get rid of it but the idea of hyphenating seems difficult.  I actually like the ring of how your name will be.  Mine would be so not ‘flowy’.  I think your name will fit on documentation/ID’s/credit cards.   My other concern was that with a longer name there could be more of a chance that people may get it wrong.

That’s true, you’d think it wouldn’t be much more difficult.

I’m just getting rid of my last name and taking his. I hate mine, so I’m excited to be rid of it! I love the way your new last name sounds, btw!

My first & last name hyphenated will be 20 characters. 🙂

First(8) + MyLast (5) – HisLast (7)

A bit long! But I like the name as a whole.

I am definately going to hyphenate. SOs sister and I share the same first name so her name is already taken…and my last name is foreign and I am too…and it is a very much a part of me because it is different…so i really dont want to loose it! My name will be First (8) + My Last (7)-His Last (7)

I am going to hyphenate too. The lady that helped us with our marriage license said in 21 years of issuing marriage licenses she had never heard of hyphenating a woman’s last name, she said “most girls just rush in here and take their husbands name”. I really didnt know what to respond with. What can I say we are in a really small country TX town.

My first(4) My last(5)-Hislast(5) …14 letters i guess not too long.

i honestly think that most hyphenated names sound clunky but yours works beautifully! i am actually kinda jealous, heh. don’t feel any hesitation about it, i think, yours really ‘flows’.

i’ve said this in other threads, but i always liked the idea of my husband and me picking a new last name together and us both changing our surnames to it. when i realized how well FI’s last name goes with my first and saw how attached he was to his surname, i just knew that i’d take his. no hyphenation, my first+maiden name are clunky enough together as is. 😛
