Thank you for your insights on this subject

I was not comfortable with my husbands last name but I wasn’t comfortable with my first name either

At times I’m very slow to see what’s going on in my family. The woman tended to drop their first names and use their middle names. I didn’t get that until my mid sixties and by then changing my name would have been a huge problem. Everything from social security to banking would have to be changed over and I’d have to start in the court.

If there is something about your name you are not comfortable with then I urge you to find what fits you and make the changes before it becomes a real trial
