You would think that I would've made my decision by the time I got married but I'm actually struggling with it.
Half the people I know know me by my full given name and the other half which is all the family and long time friends know me by a shortened version of it and have done my entire life.
My DH's surname sounds really good with my full given name BUT when linked with the shortened version I sound like a christmas card! The jokes about that started long before our engagement and has not got any better since we got married. Christmas time is going to be painful !!!!
My DH (bless him ) says he doesn't mind if I keep my maiden name but I'm pretty sure his family would. To be honest I think he's just trying to be nice.
I thought about having both surnames but it just doesn't sound right.
Anyone else having the same problem?
I'd really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you guys may have.
