    That's where our bunnies are, and our old dog

    Did you ever meet someone who chose to name their new pet the very same name as the pet they just lost?

    No

    Did you like your "new" last name when you first got married?

    Yes, it suits my personality.

    Did you ever understand the logic about new brides not taking their husband's name, when in truth, isn't the bride's maiden name, passed down to her from her father?

    Yes

    Did you ever consider that maybe someone loves their family name and/or doesn't want to follow societal standards that usually favor men?

    Yes, I do understand. If I were younger, I probably would never have changed my name. My last name gets butchered like a piece of meat.

    Did you name one of your children after your grandfather?

    Just the middle name.

    Did you have a favorite name to name your child but your so didn't like it?


    Velvet, I can understand wanting to keep a family name if you love it, but what confuses me is that our society is patriarchal anyway, and unless one's name is a hyphenated version of both parents' names, one's maiden name comes from one's father anyway. So, what's the difference if you take your husband's name? Am I making any sense or is my logic convoluted?

    No (never had kids)

    Eastcoastmom, maybe we need a thread to discuss this or I'll PM you.

    Did you ever feel like your pets choose their name and tell you?

    No pets.

    Did you want to join the discussion about name changing upon marriage?

    Yes

    Did you know that I kept my last name but in the form of a middle initial?
