Haha, I have actually been wondering if I will be able to get a [email protected] email address with my married name because my current name is SUPER common.  It took me like 50 tries to get any sort of variation of my first & last name; I seriously was thisclose to giving up and just choosing [email protected] or something!  Wink  Haha

My married name will be much less common, so I’m excited!  Smile

I actually did the same thing, reserved it (with his knowledge!) before we were officially engaged. Now that we are officially engaged, I filter all my email to that email address. I don’t send mail from it, but it’s convenient to not have to worry about moving all my old mail over later!

My email address is [email protected]. Darling Husband, Brother-In-Law, SIL and I all have those addresses. It feels like we’re part of a little club or something, lol. I had it looooong before we were engaged (like 4 years before) and I used it as my primary address.

@caybaybay: LOL!  That was one of the first things I did when I got engaged.  I am [email protected], but I couldn’t do that with FH’s name, so I will be [email protected].  Can’t wait to start using it!

I registered a version of a gmail address with my married name about 3-4 months before the proposal! I wish I’d thought of it a year ago 🙂

I love my current email address and wish I had picked out my new one before I got engaged.  It was absolutely impossible to get a new one with my future name!

Current is [email protected]
New is [email protected]

I did it before the wedding, but not before the engagement.  My new email is [email protected] (the dots are optional in gmail, it’s the same address with or without them).  The new name combination is much more common than my old one, so it took a few tries to find a version that was still available.  If you know you’re going to use it eventually and he’s aware of it, you might as well reserve your name while you still can. 🙂

lol, I am not changing my name, but I just signed up for a new married spam account!  FI is going to think this is so funny when I email him after the wedding with my new account!

[email protected]
