    I would change it, especially if you are going to use this name in the long run and change everything over on all documents.

    on another note – i am in the same situation as you with a child having my last name and i’m not sure what to do with that because i am hesitant to change his last name when i get married but i want to change mine and ideally would like us all to have the same last name…

    I would do it, but then I have to do it legally to keep my license. I am dreading this because I have so much marketing material combined with my mom so a lot of it says MomFirstName & MyFirstName Lastname. It looks so much nicer & fits better than what I will be changing it to: MomFirstName LastName & MyFirstName NewSuperlongLastname!

    Can you set up an alias for your work email?  That way if you forget to inform someone you have sporadic contact with your old one will still work.

    You can do things gradually!  You don’t need to do a massive overhaul of your ‘names’ and make it stressful.  Do the legal and important stuff now, and then as you log into things / get mail from places then change your name with them then 🙂
