The Name Change Game

Check, check, check…

I have gotten so used to managing check lists for the wedding that I am doing them in my sleep. Unfortunately I can never find that notepad when I wake up in the morning. LOL!

For anyone that has done the name change game, you know how many places you have to change you name before it is official…

First there are the big ones like the Social Security Administration and the Driver’s License Bureau. Then it is the bank, credit cards, doctors, dentist, car, bills, work, auto signatures for all e-mail accounts including the one on my phone…

Next it is all of the places that you shop online – and I shop online a LOT.

Guys have it so easy. They say “I do” then go back to life as usual. Yes, they have to remember to put the seat down on the toilet and to pick up their dirty clothes off the floor, but that’s the easy part.

At least I have a great guy that makes it all worthwhile. Thanks Honey!


  1. This is among the reasons I'm opposed to name changing. But good luck with the process! And if you're like me whenever I have to do a bunch of "paperwork" like this, you'll inevitably forget one key thing until shit hits the fan for it. I hope you avoid that, but... ;)

  2. When I was 20 and I changed my name, it took like a day and a half.

    Now, I have a mortgage, a car, several credit cards, passport, doctors, school forms, utilities, insurance, multiple bank accounts, wills, health care proxies, etc.

    I'll figure I'll be done right about age 75. And then, Tony will be 84, kick the bucket, and I'll have to change it all over again. :)

  3. If I had kept my middle name when I got married my initials would have been S.B.D.
    I know, stinky, right?
