Mine is going from uncommon to common.

I love my last name and still plan on using it as a nickname but itll be so nice to have one that people can spell and say correctly lol.

I am not comfortable sharing my names on a forum like this, but I will say that I love my Italian maiden name that begins with C. I am actually kind of sad at the prospect of dropping in the alphabet to a K last name. I will probably keep my maiden and use both, though.

Same boat at as Amaryllis and not comfy sharing that.  I switched bee names because I wanted more annonymity. 

But I also love my Italian maiden name that even though I’ve been married several months now can’t decide what to do about that since I love my husband but don’t feel that attached to his last name.  Though I do really like seeing mr and mrs hislastname on letters.

I won’t share mine because it’s not common, but my married name will be Compton. My maiden is a German name.

Yeah I’m not really comfortable sharing my name on here.  My maiden name was uncommon and my married name is more common!

Ok, I’ll share…largely because both of my names are brands.

I was Campbell, now I’m Pella.  My blog is souptowindows….get it?!

(Un)Fortunately I’m not related to anyone who is even close to the fortunes of either brand name.

I’ll be going from a fairly uncommon Irish last name to an American “top 3” last name.  Howmanyofme.com says with firstname-lastname, I’ll go from being one of a kind, to one of 657.

I’ve got a German maiden name that gets mispronounced all the time and will be going to a shorter German name that gets mispronounced too! Hoch = rhymes with coke! ha.

Yeah, since I’ve already shared my first name here, I’m totally not comfortable sharing my last. But it won’t be changing after I get married.

I’m going from a hard-to-pronounce Polish name to an easy-to-pronounce German one, but I’m annoyed that it starts with a Z.  What if they hand out treats in alphabetical order and they run out by the time they get to me?  Ha.  I’m just being silly.

If you combine our two names, you get Chillmer, my username.  I LOVE Chillmer. I want both of us to go by that, but his parents would throw a fit.  We’ve gotten cards and invitations addressed to The Chillmers.

I had a polish name, and now i have a name that doesn’t sound it but it’s German. It is a name I see on street signs in warm fabulous places. LOVE it!

@mishell – Love both of your last names – especially the italian one.
