So I’m having a really hard time deciding how to change my name. I don’t want to lose my middle name because it’s unique. It’s Chinese and it’s my mom’s name, plus it starts with a Q making me “Suzy Q” (my first name is Susan and basically this is the reason my dad came up with my name). Another reason I don’t want to lose my middle name is that my dad died when I was 2 and he came up with my name, I really want to hold on to that since I don’t have much else.
My last name is such a pain to spell and things and in a way I’m glad to not have it be my last name anymore, but I’m also the last person in my family to have this name. Almost everyone else has married off and changed their names so that this one has basically disappeared.
I’ve been thinking of changing my name to be Firstname Middle Mylast Hislast, but I guess my issue is that I’m pretty ocd and I really like things symmetrial. My new last name starts with an S also so if I did just my middle name, I’d be SQS or just my last name would make me SVS. If I did both, I’d have SQVS which is just weird to me :/
Does anyone have any suggestions? I think I’d be more willing to let go of my current last name than my middle name but I’m not sure! Am I being silly? Sorry this is so long and any suggestions would be great!
