I reserved my email a while ago too.  I used [email protected] 

I have a very uncommon name and he has a very uncommon last name so I was lucky that it wasn’t taken and probably would not have been had I waited.  I also like myfirsthislast.

Mine is the same.  I was married in April but I have not changed it.  I know it still reflects my ex’s last name but I don’t know what to do.  To be honest, I haven’t even tried my new name.  I know at my job there are people who have been married for 3+ years and human resources/it has still not changed their email for them, so I just didn’t even bother.  I did change my email signature to my new name though.  

ETA:  I have been working at my job for 21 years.  If I changed my email at work (which they would have to do at headquarters) no one would know who I was!

Yeah, I had no success in getting a gmail account with [email protected] and any other combination 🙁  Very sad indeed.

Fiance owns the domain www.”hislastname”.com (i.e. http://www.Smith.com). Both of us as well as my Future Brother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law all have our names @ “hislastname”.com. 

For example, mine’s [email protected]”hislastname”.com. Easy peasy!

My last name is quite common.  My gmail is firstmiddleinitiallastname.  If you’re comfortable using your middle name including it might reduce the chances that it’s used.  You could also tack on your maiden last name before his last name.

My current email is firstinitiallastnamefavorite# and I reserved my new email quite a while ago and was able to get firstinitialhislastnamefavorite#.  

What about something like firstname.middleinitial.hislastname? Or hislastname.firstinitial? Or hislastnamefirstinitialmiddleinitial?  Those are some combinations that my friends use.

Would you consider throwing in you maiden name initial?  It doesn’t have to be a part of your legal name but it might be enough to get the email address you want.

Something else to consider: My university email is firstinitial,middleinitial,partoflastname.  I don’t think it’s ideal, but my last university email was the same but with the initials at the end instead of the beginning so it was easy to remember.  My last name is just too common!

I had the same problem with mine!  My new last name is more common so I had to go with my nickname last name.  My full name didn’t work.

I’m going to give you a bunch of suggestions using a period between parts, but you could substitute a dash – or an underscore _ or even a number 9 to make it work. You’ll definitely find one!

Using Jane Doe Smith:

 

Jane.smith

Smith.jane

janed.smith

jane.d.smith

smith.janed

smith.jane.d

jds

sjd

jan3smith

janesm1th

jan3sm1th

there are literally thousands of combinations you can use! Good luck!

My old email was [email protected].  To get a combo that would work with my new married name, I had to go with [email protected].  It took a while to find something that wasn’t taken though.
