My current signature has my initials visible with two squiggles after each, and fat circles above because both my first and last names have the letter I in the middle.  I’ve been practicing, and my married signature is very similar, I sign my first name exactly the same way, but I have to pause and think about the last name.  But it’s the initial followed by a squiggle.  (My signature has been illegible since I was about 20.)

My FI’s last name is Hall which is a lot shorter and easier to sign than my current last name, I can’t wait to change it!

MrsNino:  Ah mine does too! It was really my first official “signature” and it looks terrible.

 

Not to mention I went from a very easy to write last name to one that has “nmun” all together. Try writing those in cursive :/ It’s been a struggle, but i’ve finally caught on and I went to write a check for my car loan (still has maiden name on it, you have to refi to change names, nope) and I messed up and signed First Name Married Name Maiden Name. It was a mess!

This post makes me think I should probably start practicing! Wedding is 8 months out, but I sign my name constantly at work… and I’m a bit of a perfectionist too. Eek!

I am going from a nice short W last name to a longish G name. Thankfully my handwriting is a hodge-podge of mostly cursive even after all these years, so I’ve got the cursive G down still.

I just flowed into my signature.  I also sign paperwork all the freaking time (sick of it, lol).  I know the first few times there was a lot of hesitation but it’s pretty much natural now, aside from the occasional spaceout where I sign my old name.  It still has the same vibe as my old name – tall letters are extra tall and skinny, even though the letters themselves are different.  I think anyone could tell both names were written by me.  It never even occurred to me to practice this ahead of time!

Spookily my Fiance and I have very similar signatures.  The thought of me having a practice at a new signature hasn’t even crossed by mind until now. I better have a go and see how it looks!

I think it’ll be a difficult adjustment but you have the rest of your life to make it! I used to work with a girl who signed it wrong constantly. Her husband started a Name Jar where every time she said it or signed it wrong, she had to put a dollar. It was towards date nights lol 🙂

I just used the same signature, figure I was already taking his name and that was enough
