    I think first and last is the easiest.

    I like the formatting of first.last best…but is that even available? It may not be. If it isn’t, my second choice would be firstmiddleinitiallast because the dot looks so random sometimes! Lol

    The . isn’t needed and won’t make Victoria.Tanner vs VictoriaTanner avaliable and will still go to the same.

    I had to go the Victoria.Smith.Tanner route because the VictoriaSmith and Victoria.Smith were taken. The dot can look wonky, but my name can create unrelated words when smushed together and it it’s easier to say on phone calls because it’s broken up.

    I have [email protected] for my current name as well as my future last name. (Yeah, a little ahead of the game on that one!)

    @AmeliaBedelia: and @gogogiraffes: Sometimes the . is really helpful in breaking things up.

    With my new email (First.MiddleInitial.Last) I have a section in the middle that is **m.M.M**** (* = other letters).  I feel like my email would be messed up a lot if I didn’t have the . because it would be mMM in the middle and be very easy to accidently leave one out.

    @gogogiraffes: What you said is correct – gmail does not acknowldge periods or capitalization, so placing either of them in various points will not affect the email address. An email sent to [email protected] will be recieved even if it is sent to [email protected]. Does that help with the decision at all?

    I like the plain and simple [email protected]  I have that for my maiden name.  Unfortunately my Fiance has a really common last name and my first name is jennifer so none of these options are available for us once I change my name.  🙁

    i love first.last so if that is an option that is available to you then i would opt for that. it is also the most popular gmail option and the norm if you will.

    for mine i have to use my middle initial so it is (for example) KiraJSmith which I don’t like as much as Kira.Smith
