Hey your not totally crazy lol. I have practiced his last name before mine flows my new last name not so much I have some work to do to get comfortable with writing it. I bet writing it for the first time like that was a little strange feeling.

You’re not crazy.  I would totally be doing that too, if my signature was at all ledgible.  Both our names start with the same letter (which is the only thing you can read in my signature) so mine didn’t change at all.  My husband didn’t find that nearly as amusing as I did when I pointed it out to him. ๐Ÿ™‚  I make the scribble a little longer if I think of it.

It’s funny how we can like or dislike writing certain letters.  I’m always happy when I write lowercase z’s. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a really boring class my last semester of grad school (about 6 months before our wedding), and I filled a whole notebook just practicing writing my new name and variations of it haha. And I still don’t like how it looks!  It’s actually the cursive capital H that is throwing me off…it just doesn’t look right no matter how I do it. So you are not alone!

It’s a really good idea to practice before you even get to the SS office.  Otherwise it tends to look like a grade schooler signed it for you – haha!!

You’re not crazy in my books! My handwriting is horrible in pen so I practice my future last name all the time. My name is nice and flowy looking in cursive, but I can’t seem to make his look nice in my own writing. Ugh! He popped up behind me once while I was practicing and said that he thought girls stopped doing that stuff after High School. Lol

I was practicing it at work when doodling after getting engaged in order to perfect it.

I know I’m going to spend a lot of time practicing my new name.  My cursive SUCKS big time, and when I sign my own name, it’s really just my first, middle, and last initials, with spastic squigglies (somewhat resembling lowercase letters, depending on how fast I’m writing) after the first and last initials.  Really not sure what I’m going to do with his last name.  I’ll definitely have to practice it a lot until it flows.

I was just thinking about this today!  I had about 40 letters to sign and was tempted to throw in the new name on a few for practice.  The first letter is the same and the rest I kind of scribble anyway so you probably couldn’t tell!

I’ve practiced my last name a few times and I still have a year to go! ๐Ÿ™‚ I too will have an H last name. H’s aren’t nearly as fun to make as my current M. ๐Ÿ™

I did the same thing!!  It helped because my new name is 4 letters and is also a common word, so it was easy to practice.

Haha! It’s not crazy. It’s actually a pretty good idea in my opinion.

My soon-to-be last name ends in a dreaded “Z”. I hate cursive Z’s. I just can’t get em right. Guess it’s time I head over to dafont myself. LOL!

Im going from an S to an M.. and I have been praticing ALOT! My new last name also throws another cap letter 3rd one in. Its been fun, and after a few hundred tries, I finally figured out how I will sign.
