I did it, hive! I have successfully changed my last name!
I hadn’t spoken about my decision to change my name before, frankly, because I hadn’t felt like I had anything new to add to the conversation. All along, I knew I would take Sphinx’s last name as my own, and switch my maiden name to my middle name. Nothing fancy here.
When we came back from the honeymoon, I started with some easy changes—my Facebook profile and my work email. I’ve been signing emails and documents with my maiden + married name since the wedding, to make the transition easier. Sure, there’s been a lot of “Now how do you say your new last name?” around the office, since Sphinx’s name is pretty rare, but I expected that to happen.
