Hello hive, I have a name change question. So I am very excited to take my fiance’s last name and have always planned to do so. Here’s the issue, I have two middle names already. How do I formulate my new name? One of my middle names is my mom’s last name (she chose not to change her name when she got married). I don’t really want to get rid of any of my names, but 5 names seems really long. Any suggestions?

Personally, I’d choose to drop one of the middle names because I do think 5 is a lot. If I were you, I’d drop either your mom’s maiden name or your maiden name, but the choice is totally personal. One alternative would be to hyphenate your moms name and maiden name so you’d have just as many letters, but technically only 4 names.

Can you add a second last? So you’d be FirstName 1stMiddle 2ndMiddle 1stLastName 2nd LastName? I mean, royal peopel tend to have tons of names, so if anyone hassels you – say you’re a royal from another country!

I like D’orsays advice! Barring that, drop the middle name that isn’t your mother’s maiden name.

I was leanning toward the D’orsays idea, but I was afraid it was too much. I’m glad to hear support for it. Thanks guys!
