Changing my name
I'm thinking very seriously of changing my name. This is difficult to write out, so bear with me if it's a little out of order or scrambled.
My father is a child molester. It's a fact, I know it. He molested me and my sister. I have NO idea if he'd ever done it before or if he's done it since. He has managed to weasel his way back into my life by way of guilt tripping. (I know I shouldn't fall for it, and I KNOW counseling would help immensely and I'm getting there, I just want to be in a place that I know I will stay for a long time so I don't have to transfer and start all over with a new counselor.) Anyway, his family is very similar to him. His brother served time for molesting HIS daughter, another brother just has an infatuation with young girls, I don't know if he has ever done anything wrong legally, though. His family pretends like nothing ever happened. When my sister finally came forward to the police about what had happened, his family basically disowned us, called us liars, etc. I have since cut them out of my life. They don't know my children, etc.
My father is going to prison in June for receiving and possessing child pornography. During that time, I want to change my name and essentially disappear. I figure even if I can't and they eventually find me (they are persistent, and have serious issues with harassment) at least I can have a clean start and let the past be the past.
These are the names on my list. I am changing my first and middle names. (I'd like to keep my current middle name as a second middle name, so that is Lynn.)
Anyway, if you can help, thank you!
Emeline/Eveline. (I really can't see myself as either of these, though.)
Adelina (Lina nn?)
