LoneCoon: I seriously considered taking my wife's last name. Mine's 9 letters and everyone pronounces it wrong. Hers was Hill. I still can't believe she wanted my last name.
Raging Thespian: Mr. and Mrs. Hurry? I don't see any problem with that.
SlothB77: is his name Mike by any chance?
Mishno: Future generations of geneologists will burn these people in effigy.
ukexpat: What a farking stupid idea.
Doomed: I'd almost rather see this than the epidemic of hyphenated names. Almost./wife took my last name//gosh, we must live in the FIFTIES.
SkunkWerks: So, a theoretical Union between Natalie Portman and Nelson C. Manteau would become the Portmanteaus.
GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: Seriously, if your child has to go through early grade school with a name like Puffin
CeroX: Woah... Tim Curry and Helen Hunt are getting married?I thought he was gay...
lohphat: How 'bout women stop the tradition of being chattel and keep the name they were born with, like their husband (usually) does?Kids get the dad's name and middle name is mon's family name? Why can't both family histories be respected?
WhippingBoy: I must admit, it's better than hyphenated names.Whenever I see someone with a hyphenated last name, I think to myself "Oh great, another idiot".
ArcadianRefugee: WhippingBoy: I must admit, it's better than hyphenated names.Whenever I see someone with a hyphenated last name, I think to myself "Oh great, another idiot".You can think that, but hyphenating surnames is a fairly old practice.Also makes genealogical research a snap.
Badgers: Only noblity was allowed to have a double surname. Everyone else using it like that is technically breaking the law (here in the Netherlands, anyway).
TheMysticS: Doomed: I'd almost rather see this than the epidemic of hyphenated names. Almost./wife took my last name//gosh, we must live in the FIFTIES.Oh, ffs. Since you've boldly expressed this opinion, and I have been waiting to ask someone for a long time, I wonder- why do you care?Does it hurt your eyes? The hyphen, I mean. Why the eff would you care what someone else names themselves?It's no skin off of your back, I'm sure, unless you're a data entry worker or some such.I took my husband's last name, because his feelings were hurt that I wouldn't. Ya, I know. It's ok, tho. He's worth it.So, I traded my mis-pronounced name for a very simple, relatively common name, not Smith or Jones or Wang or Hu or anything like that, but common.My sister-un-law traded up to my maternal name in her book. She got tired of her Polish -ski at the end. Must have been bad, since my maternal name could be said (mis-pronounced, mind you) as a corallary for poop, or dick.Or drugs, or soda-pop.---no slashies for choo---Mr. and Mrs. Dash T.
