NLN No Last Name
I've always wanted to change my last name. As a word, not a name, it means something akin to messy, disorganized, devastated. As a child I thought I'd someday be married and would change it that way, but now have no desire to be married. For my profession, the image it puts in the minds of potential clients is negative making me want to change it even more. There are only two good things about my last name. 1. My nieces and nephews feel more connected to me because we share a last name and 2. It is unique; there is not one other person the world over with my fn/ln combo.
So, ultimately I really like the idea of having only one name but I wonder how much complication would it cause and, realistically how often would I have to deal with NLN showing up as though it actually were my last name? That may actually be worse than Myfirstname Devistated-mess.
Please share your ideas, opinions, and experiences. Thank you.
