Speaking of names...


Jason and I have gone back and forth over this. I really REALLY don't want to change my name. Nothing against him. AT ALL. I just don't understand why I have to be the one to change my name b/c of some antiquated "rule." So I get called a feminist. I told him I would compromise and hyphenate. That's not good enough. *sigh* Oh well, I guess we still have 4 months to fight about it. And really if I change my name I can't do my super cool name trick. Then how UNCOOL would I be??

i feel ya! we are thinking a) i will hyphen b) i will use my last name as my middle name or c) we will both change our last names.

right now we're about 50 percent on both changing our last names. jake doesn't like his either.

I don't want to change mine, either. I don't like any combo of my three names and his- hyphenation, four names, dropping mine, blech. He doesn't care what I do, fortunately.

The *only* thing that concerns us about this is future scenarios involving picking up kids from school with different last names than us (and what will their last name be? beats me) or trying to get into a hospital room to see each other and the staff not believing we're married or something. How much of that is crazy worrying and how much of it is legit worrying, I wonder?

When I was little I always thought that I would NEVER change my name, but for me, it'll be a privilege to have his last name. I cant wait for the day!
