After a month of being married, I am changing my name today! While I am super excited about this, for some reason it's a little bittersweet for me to be losing my maiden name. I am going to keep my maiden name as my middle name, but it's still a little sad to lose the name I've had for 30 years! I know that I don't HAVE to change my name, but I want to. These feelings are not enough to make me change my mind and not change my name, but it's just a little bittersweet.
Did/Does anyone else feel this way?
