i think its lovely changing your name, it makes you one, if it was the other way around it would be sexiest too and lets face it, the woman run the home (nothing could be held together without us) may aswell give them something to make them feel as if there in charge

Ive put off getting engaged to my oh for years as his surname really isnt to my taste ,aint his fault i know lol.
Recently tho ive decided im changing my name back to my previous 2nd name (long story but nope i aint been married b4 lol) and when and if i have a babba i want it to take my name and not his. Do you think that's too harsh?
Then again my oh can always take my name and we can all live in harmony ,or is that just wishful thinking. Dont think his parents would be too pleased lol
Umm maybe i`ll leave the engagement for another however many years, afterall its only a piece of paper. So long as the love & trust is there that's all that counts. Ohh how soppy do i sound

I'm quite a feminist, but this one doesn't really bother me. I took my husband's last name mostly because it's tradition, but it doesn't worry me too much because you have an option to keep yours or the husband can take your name.
If we didn't have that option, I'd be a bit more up in arms about it.

Post subject: married names
I got married 2 1/2 years ago and took my husbands name because of tradition, dont get me wrong i do actually like my new surname.
Only thing is i have 2 other sisters who are both now married, they also took there husbands name.
I would of liked a brother so my old surname would carry on in the family, bit selfish i know.
Im due go give birth in five weeks and by back is sore i can hardly walk, hope it goes after i have my baby.

My old surname was Graham before I got married an became a Fish - I was going to keep me old name and be Fiona Lousie Graham Fish - however my DH is called Richard Graham Fish and his Dad is called Graham Richard Fish - so I just thought it would be to consfusinng so I got stuck with Fiona Louise Fish.
I have said that if we have a son it will be called ........ Something Graham Fish - to take in both families names - I suppose im lucky that I can use my old surname as first name.
But please tell me who would chosice to be called Fish.......urm NO ONE my point made I think!!!!

lol Fishy, excellent name!! At least you don't need to keep spelling it over the phone!! Plus, you can have fun with old sayings like 'a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle'... very cryptic and confusing for you...
edit - ooo just thought, also when you have your hundreds of babies, you can go on holiday to the seaside, push your whole family into the water and shout 'look, plenty more fish in the sea'.
Ah, hours of entertainment...
