nomenclature angst [Jul. 2nd, 2009|11:12 pm]
Just me.

I have less than a month to figure out what I want to do about keeping my last name or not.

Is it too late to entertain both of you abandoning your family names and going with something entirely fictitious?

Mr. and Mrs. "King-and-Queen-o-1337" combines hyphens AND horrible leet-speak!

Maybe if he put a silent numeral in his last name, that would ease the transition?

How about you keep your last name but any kids get his? That way you don't have to go through the process of changing anything, but he gets nomeclaturual credit for kids.

Well, Jane Hawkins kept her name, and Julie changed hers. I've also heard of women changing their name (it's free) to something else -- mother's maiden name or a third choice.

If this helps any (and it's likely you know this already) -- women changing their surname has a pretty unromantic origin. It's a property signifier, that the woman was going from being her father's property to her husband's property.

You collect stuff. Collect another name! Just add it on.
