@soontobeMrsBoo:  oh wow, that’s so strange. me and my Fiance have decided on the same solution for exactly the same reasons, and one of our choices is Manley given my surname ends in ‘-man’ (and his ‘-ley’).

i’m not much help RE: changing everything as i’m hunting around on here trying to find those answers myself, but i did read that it might be easier if he first updates his name via deed-poll and then you take the surname as is usually done for marriage. although, i am in the uk and things might be different here so that may not be any use to you at all! 🙂

I’m meeting more and more couples doing this – very cool.

totally no help at all- but I’m definitely giving my future son the middle name Danger… so he can say “Danger is my middle name, baby.”


also, I go by my middle name, and would like to switch my first & middle names when i get married (when i’m also changing my last name) and wonder how difficult that process would be, if its even worth it. Maybe i’ll also get some insight from this thread!

I have no tips but I think that’s a really great solution! 🙂 You’re not nuts, you’re awesome 🙂

I think its a little nuts but it seems to work for your situation! Just make sure that if you’re planning on having a family that you make a record of your name changes and make copies etc so that if in future they/grandchildren etc want to do a family tree they dont get to a dead end when they get to you two! Or perhaps start a family tree yourself so that there’s some evidence of a life before you!
