I"m seriously thinking of changing my name legally.

Has anyone ever done this?

I changed my name back to my maiden name. What are you wanting to do?

I found out that in Australia I am legally known as both names even whilst married.

WOOWHOO!! I reverted back to my own name at the end of last year.

I can't believe I ever changed it to his rubbish name. My name is one of the coolest names in the world.


I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

I reverted to my maiden name.

But I secretly wanted to change my ENTIRE name. For my new life. After much debate, discussion - and perhaps some alcohol - my sister and I came up with the perfect name....

Rose Sparklemagic!

Totally wish I had done that. Since that night, my sis calls me "Rosie", lol.

My SO's mother changed her name to her mother's maiden name. Had I known her while going through my divorce... and knowing I could do that... that is what I would have done.

A client of ours changed his name, not sure why, he didn't say. I don't know if it's a better name for him. He went from a Barry to a Frederick and then added a famous last name as his middle name and then added a III to it.

Men don't have madain names to go back to.

Why dreamie, do you want to change your whole entire name?

I am thinking seriously about changing my name back to my maiden name - we've been separated 6 months. I just hate writing it and hearing it, even though of course it is my children's name.

t/j (sorry) - StrongButBroken - as a fellow Aussie, can I just start using my maiden name again? No forms to fill in etc? I guess I'd have to supply some sort of proof to all the many companies etc I'd have to inform?

AussieMum, Nope - just show your marriage certificate. I got a whole bunch of certified copies made and emailed them out or showed up in person. All done within a few days.

It.is.awesome.

I've already changed back to my maiden name even though divorce isn't final. Also applied to change my son's surname to mine. Stbx had to sign for it and luckily agreed. I don't want my son to carry the legacy of stbx's surname.

It was a small but significant victory for me. Amazing for emotional growth. Can't wait to have the papers for my son.

I'll never change my name again.

I am seriously considering moving to a whole new different last name. Having the same name as my sons is the only reason I would consider keeping his last name.. Don't really love my maiden name, so I have been seriously considering a totally new last name.. Still not sure what I will do, but just wanted to let you know you aren't the only one who has thought about doing this..

I have debated this one. My maiden name - nope. Alcoholic Dad, NPD Mother, HORRIBLY abusive childhood - no thanks. This is my second M, my children have my first H's last name. Nope. No children with current H. So if I get D - I would get an entirely NEW last name. I am thinking Glitter.

Im going from a 4 letter last name to a unpronounceable 10 letter maiden name. Yup. I want my new beginning that bad.

A guy I work with changed his last name to his stepdads. His bio dad was an abuser but his step was a real dad. So cool!

No, folks, I want a brand new name.

My maiden name is Irish and had enough problems in school with that.

I want a NEW name that STBX knows nothing about because there is no telling just what mischief he might do after the D.

I don't want him messing up with my identity (theft) so I would not want him getting a chance to hack into my bank accounts, create online profiles, create small IRA's and then close them out so I'd be in trouble with the IRS...well, you get the idea.

I just want to be be like All Brand New after my D.

That is a cool name, NG...but I've been "testing" out the name I have decided upon in various ways...and it fits!

***Like a glove!

Every time I use it, I feel re-born.

Maybe more people should do this.

I just worry about future travel, paperwork, etc.

I changed mine back to my maiden name after the divorce but I kind of wish I would have changed it to something else now. If I did change it to something else I would have used my maternal grandmothers maiden name, if I ever have a boy I plan to use that as his first name.

My maiden name is Irish and had enough problems in school with that.

Maybe we have the same last name. Lets just say, when I go to the store and hand my credit card to the cashier a majority of the time I see them trying to hold back a chuckle.

I am known in my business by my married name and I thought I would keep it. But after some smart person on SI pointed out that she did not want her X's last name on her tombstone for all eternity did I realize I HAD TO CHANGE MY LAST NAME.

I would rather take the business hit than the emotional hit.

My maiden name is so incredibly bad that I really don't want it again (it's majorly joke-worth and includes a body part). I also don't want EX's name either...especially with his parents being such jerks to me, I don't want anything to do with them.

Maybe a brand new name is in order. Maybe I'll change my first name to Tabitha too.
