Name Change Express Giveaway!

Posted by on Nov 23, 2009 in Blog | 27 Comments

So, I don’t know how many of you out there are considering changing your name, but let me tell you that it is NOT an easy task!

First you have to decide WHAT you are doing with your name. Are you taking his last name? Are you hyphenating? Are you making a new last name that is a hybrid of your two last names…. something that can be a challenge to do well, to say the least.  And then there is getting the word out there.

I have a past clientfriend (that’s what they are called, btw, once the wedding is over- Clientfriends) who months later still needs to end every email with “Please Note my new last name….” and that’s just inter-office.  There is the DMV, passport office, bills, and more.

All the reason to consider using a name-change service.  They make it easy and tend to gather and consolidate all of your information giving, and sending into one convenient place…. well at least that is what Name Change Express does. And as a plus, they don’t require you to submit tons of personal information online, minimizing exposure to your identity. NameChangeIcon200

So, we are giving away 2 Name Change Express packages worth $30 each.  Simply leave a comment below, and the person who leaves the 10th comment will automatically win one of the packages.  The 2nd package will go to the commenter with the most unique hybrid name of your first and last names (whether you intend on using it or not… you know I’m always open to a good joke!)   I’m going to keep this contest open until Friday… so you can ponder what new and ridiculous last name you can create together over Turkey day.  Or you can just try and leave the 10th comment. Please don’t comment more than once ladies!namechangepostcard

    I’ve “changed” my name at work and on my email, but it’s not official and I dread the weeks (months? days?) when I have one name on my ID and another on my passport. For the time being, I sign/introduce myself according to how much I’m liking my husband that day.

    Soo.. this is awesome, btw… My husband Morgan and I have been married for over a year and have plans to change our last names together and combine them to become a completely new last name using parts of each of our original names.
    My current last name is Weinberg and his is Craft… soooooo we decided on WEINCRAFT! :) It was either that or Craftberg… but we like option one ALOT. Also, I am Jewish and we plan to raise our one day children Jewish as well, and I wanted them to feel a connection to who they are in that way also via their name… just like I have growing up.
    so I hope we win so we can ACTUALLY do this!!! :)

    thanks

    we’ve kidded around with this:
    carosello + d’alessandro could =
    carosandro or d’alesello
    i don’t think that’ll be happening though. and if we hyphenated, our kids would sound like a lawfirm! :)

    A few of my distant cousins have combined their names taking the last three letters of our last name: ain. Then combining that with the first letter of their now husbands last name. So far there is: Pain, Lain, and Bain. Mine would be Dain… Not sure I like it!

    Oh boy lol … Zaccone + Jimenez = Jimenezaccone ? That literally makes my brain hurt just thinking about it. I am definitely just taking his name…just too many syllables to hyphenate.

    PS — my fiance was actually surprised that I was planning to take his name, which surprised me.

    He’s Kalish, and I’m Zelko, so I like Kako. Though, if we did that, we’d totally have to open a bakery… Kako Cake Co.!

    Changing my name is both something I look forward to for the symbolic change and something I dread for the sheer logistics and hassle involved, so I would LOVE to win this service! My first name is Stephanie and my fiance’s last name is Parker, so friends at my office have already anticipated my new email address at work to read “Sparker@whatever.com”(first initial, last name). I will probably get some puzzled looks from clients at first. :)

    My name is Dutton and his is Campbell… so Campton? Dubell?

    While my name change may not be too exciting, my cousin’s was awesome. He is Morris and she was Huggins… More Hugs! Such an appropriate combo for the two of them.

    My name – Hodge. His name – Jinks. The combinations just don’t work.

    Jidge

    I’m just planning to take his name.

    My boyfriend, after 2 weeks of dating, made me swear that if we got married someday that I would hyphenate.
    My last name= Harms.
    His last name = Cox.
