I've always intended to change my surname when I got married, but the reality of actually being called something different has only just started to dawn on me.
That my actual name was going to change. Like, be different from what it has always been. Since I was like, born.
As much as I love the idea of having the same name as my husband and future children, I feel a little sad that I will no longer have the same name as my wonderful parents and beloved sister.
I've always felt my current surname is a bit serious and manly sounding. But my new name will sound quite posh and I'm not sure what is better..
And it will mean a new signature. I only just got the knack of making my current one look the same every time.
I will be moving to the front of the alphabet after twenty eight years at the end. I've liked being at the back it buys you time during roll call.
I asked the Mr. if he would change his surname. He said no.
I said what if we both change our name into a brand new hybrid surname.
Which is funny because this would make us the Wilbots. We could have a robot themed wedding! (incase you were wondering what that robot photo had to do with anything) He said no again
He said of course I shouldn't change mine if I don't really want to.
But I do really want to.
However that doesn't mean I won't feel sad to say goodbye to the old name.
(And isn't it good to have the choice).
