What’s My Name Again?

Today, a mere 3 months after our wedding day, I gave up my maiden name and took my husband’s last name as my own.

I went from Leslie McDermott (check out that blonde hair! Ow Ow!)

to Leslie Brinkley! Don’t I look so much older, wiser and married now?

I wanted us both to change our last names to McBrinkley, because I didn’t want to give up the “Mc” in my last name – I love the “Mc” – but the hubs wasn’t having that! I ended up changing my middle name to my maiden last name to keep the “Mc” in there somewhere!

Now I have to get used to referring to myself with my new name and also signing things with my new name! Signing the B and the K in cursive is going to take some getting used too!

Did you or would you change your last name when you are married?

Would you make your maiden name your middle name?

I would love to hear how everyone else deals with the name changing fun!
