My Fiance has political aspirations and wants to run for a small local office. He is planning to take my last name when we married. My question for you Bees is if you were voting for a candidate only by name which one would you choose?
John Doe Gomez
John Doe Nareau

Probably gomez because I’d be more likely to remember it since I know how to say it.
ETA: Something you’ve probably already thought of (and shouldn’t ever HAVE to think of, but the world sucks)… consider your demographic. Gomez sounds hispanic whereas the other is somewhat undefined in heritage. If he is planning to run in a primarily white/conservative area, the non-descript name may be better.

@CorgiTales: Unfortunately I agree……ridiculous, but true.

@CorgiTales: And the reverse is true as well, if he is hispanic and in a hispanic demographic he’ll want to keep that identity. It’s the world we live in. Nareau is a pretty sounding name so it will probably be popular with the girls on here.
