Hello world from my new name.
I’ve wanted to change my surname for a while. I hadn’t changed it upon marriage (which made divorce a lot easier) but it has always bothered me that its my fathers name, that my mothers lineage wasn’t considered important enough to impart.
After my mothers death I considered using her maiden name, or her mothers maiden name but both are a bit odd and I wanted something less common but not strange.
So I’ve taken the plunge and have picked a new name. I’m planning to try it out on social media for a while before doing anything official.
For now, I am champion. Of my own living room if nothing else!
