When I marry my h2b, I will be double barreling my name. So the question is, what is your h2b/husband's doing/done about their name?
I'm going to be having a double barrel name. My partner was to pleased when I told him but he understands now xx
Hi I will not not double barrel my name :)
We are both double barrelling so that nobody has to give up their name, we become a new family of two
Nothing, I'm just taking his name. I think Stephenson-Wyles would be a bit long
Pilkington-Mason.....nah, I'm looking forward to being Mrs Pilkington xxx
We took each other's names. He understood that I didn't want to loose my family name and our names together sound really nice. We both went double-barrelled.
I love my surname, but not too fond of my fella's surname so I am going to double-barrel. He knows this and complained that my name would be well long but I don't mind 😂
We are considering making up a new name together. Quite excited about it!
My husband double barrelled too. If he is going to do it get him to do it by deedpole before you are married, then you will automatically take his name on your wedding day. If you both do it after, it will cost you more x
I will be double-barrelling mine but my h2b won't
Warren cruttenden would be a pain! I have to spell my surname as it is! lol I just took his x
Cope-O'Rourke (or vice versa) doesn't really work, so I'm taking his name. I'm really looking forward to being Mrs O'Rourke actually, but then again I'm hugely traditional anyway.x.
I'm not double barrelling but laugh at the thought of it..
Mrs Carr Price
I wish I could do this but my h2bs name is already double barrelled ️ (Davidson-Farley) so I don't think Leveridge-Davidson-Farley will work
My h2b already has a double barrel name so not much choice. But one thing to think about - if you have a really long name then you will have difficulty writing your name in boxes on forms. My h2b already has trouble and my full name will be longer so it could be fun lol
I'm taking h2bs name as it sounds odd double barrelled with my maiden name and my current surname
I'd be Fletcher-McDonald so gonna take his name and be the proud owner of the name Mrs McDonald
He didn't change his and I stuck a hyphen and his on the end of mine as I didn't want to give mine up. He wasn't best pleased to start but he's fine with it now. We did consider both using Hendersimm but imagine having to spell it every time.
I'm taking his name. It's way easier to spell than mine!
Nope, just taking his name. I think Björn-Gwilliam would just confuse the life out of everyone. 😂
I didn't want to change my name - some friends suggested double barreling but 'Bibby-Hand' sounds like a disease so I just kept mine & he kept his x
I am going to have a double barrel name , and my H2B will keep his surname.
I have no middle name so I can choose both .
I'm double barrelled and my husband kept his, it was my choice to change and do it's his choice not to.
We debated on it but it sounded weird "Rodgers-Heaven"....just sounded wrong😂😂. I decided to take his as it meant more to him. We wont have children but so that wasnt a factor. But he was so happy when i said i would so that was all it needed :-)
I wanted to double barrel but it doesn't really work. I'd had my name 31 years when we got married and I'm kinda attached to it. I think I'm more upset than the husband
My mum double barrelled her name, my dad just uses 'Barry' as his surname whereas my mum uses 'traynor-barry' bee 'traynor-brent' as her name, also myself and my brother are 'traynor-barry'
Mines going double barreled. But I'm just keeping my last name
We both double barrelled. We couldn't get his changed before the wedding, he'd only just had a childhood name change made official, and we were warned it might look dodgy changing it again so soon, without being married, so just bit the cost (was only ~£25 anyway) after.
I'm changing mine without question
My H2B already has a double barrelled so im taking his! Xx
I can't wait to have my h2b surname mrs rose
We are both going to double barrel x
Surname arguments are one of the reasons we aren't getting married. I don't want his surname, I definitely don't want to double barrel and he doesn't see the point in getting married if I'm not gonna do either. So we went to the Maldives this year instead and we're having a new kitchen next year. Who says romance is dead
I double barrelled first time as im the last aikman in my tree but this time i am becoming Thomson... i want our family line to start here with our baby too x
I quite like my surname but more of a traditionalist and I personally want to take his. Plus I'm sick of having to spell my surname out to everyone who asks me for my full name 😂 and I'm sick of people pronouncing it wrong. So Mrs Parker will be so much easier for me lol x
My husband took mine as my dad and his brother had all girls and we didn't want the name to end!
We always said we were double barrelling, we told my father who was over joyed, now my dad has passed its even more important to me. Only my h2b seems to have changed his mind, I think he doesn't want to upset his parents. Oh well i am sure it will work out
I would love to but don't want to be thought of as cheap wine Lamb-brisco!
I'm having mine double barrelled but will be having my h2b's name first instead of the traditional second. We haven't decided what name our kids will have yet x
My husband to be doesn't get on with his father so he's changing his name before we get married to his mum's maiden name :) x
So I want to double barrel, what is the deal with children - have people that have double barrelled given their children a double barrel too? My partner isn't too keen I don't think but I don't want my family line to end with me as there are no sons in the family now x
I'm keeping my own name I use it for professional purposes and I changed it on here but if anyone asks what my name is I tell them its simone cardoo its my name and I cant get used to anything else
We're choosing an entirely new surname together :-)
Doesn't bother us. That's OK
McGovern-Thompson is too much of a mouthful so Mrs Thompson it is
I'm changing mine to his as our son already has it so makes sense to me
Me and h2b are double-barrelling. Which surname goes first, mine or his? 🤔
Nice idea, when are you getting married.
I'm keeping my name, he'll keep his, and our two children have double barrelled. Do whatever makes you happy
I'm gonna be a Williams-Hall. He is staying as a Hall. Our son is a Hall. I've been a Williams for 28 year - a wedding wont change that! X
Dont do it mine is double barrelled from my parents and I hate it! Too long, gets spelt wrong, doesnt fit on forms.... my whole name does even fit on my bank card. Cant wait to get rid of mine
Definitely can't double barrel mine and my fiancés as I already have a double barrel name and with his it'll be even worse! Although people can't always pronounce his as it's German, Domeyer, it's better than Breeden-West Domeyer! He won't change his to Breeden-West either so Domeyer it is for me and I'm okay with that also I have a brother who can hopefully carry it on so even better x
I am looking forward to gaining my new surname Gregory ..... As after years folks in shops getting my name wrong & calling me Sue Pollard from Hi De Hi , when in fact it is Sarah Pollard ....!!!! 😂😂
As a lass with a double barrelled first name, I wouldn't try for the surname too. I find having the hypen makes form filling more tedious and if doing something over the phone, it is a nightmare, and I can assume for a surname it is just as bad.
My partner's nephew double barrelled to match his wife. I don't personally want to double barrell mine because I would have a double double-barrell if I did (Anne-Louise Percival-Winson or Anne-Louise Winson-Percival)
I'm turning my surname into a middle name when we get married. Don't want to lose it x
Well my h2b surname is Willey and my best friend REALLY wants me to change my name to Green-willey...
I would like to double up but I already get cold calls asking to speak to Stewart, if I double it would be Stewart Hammond (sounds like a lads name) or Hammond Stewart and it still doesn't really work 😐
Not sure if I'll end up double barreling my name, but if I do my fiance has actually talked about double barrreling his name as well, since he doesn't have a middle name (that way we'll both have the same surname as our kids when the time comes) x
We decided that we didn't want to double barrel, so I am taking my maiden name as my second middle name, and my husband decided to do the same! :)
I double barreled and he's stayed the same. I drop my maiden name though when I can't be bothered to spell it out
I'm gonna take my partners name cause I hate my surname if I had a better one then I'd want him to consider having both surnames.
I'm keeping my surname as a middle name and having his name. I have three children (2 which are not his) and they all have Fitzjohn as a middle name and their dad's surname. If I change my name completely then it's pointless them having it anyway xx
As you can see mine is double barreled and my husband did the same too x.
I don't like double barrelled names so I chose not to. My husband didn't want me to either :)
I did it with my ex as he had a common name haha. He also took my name so we both had a double barrelled name. He had to change it by deed poll and I just took 'his' name after marriage. This time around with my new partner I will be taking his name as I love it xx
I can't really... Houghton-Deighton just doesn't work
We can't double barrel as our names sound ridiculous together. I will take my fiance's name probably as I'd like to have the same name as my son.
I can't double barrel I would be alys Georgia Brierley myatt- Bennett . That way too long
