Women with hyphenated last names

Rate this topic

My Mom's maiden name became her middle name.

Her (former) middle name became her first name, which is how she'd been know anyway.

She lost nothing in this, and embraced all of the above.

She's gone now and I like that her parents roots are captured in her epitaph.

 

I'm named after my Dad who was named after His Mother's Father.

They were all girls on my Grandmother's side, so it would have been lost there.

Actually...there are three other of my Dad's cousins who have the same first and middle names in honor of their Grandfather.

My wife did it.  I've been calling her a mexican since the day we were married.  I don't acknowledge hyphenated names.

When my wife and I were starting to get serious, I made it clear that I wouldn't marry someone who did that. She totally agreed and never wanted to. That was a good sign.

 

And she's a soccer player/mom/coach.

Wouldn't it be funny if Steve Jobs married Jawana Blow? 

 

Or if Courtney Cox married Jerry Zucker:

 

Hi, I'm Courtney Cox-Zucker. 

Of course you are!

Same here.

Having worked in customer service for over 10 years, I can confirm that the people with hyphenated last names tend to complain the most.  If they can't agree on their own name, they most likely can't agree on much of anything else, either.
