What to do with Gwen...
I need a bit of advice. I posted here earlier asking for advice about what name to choose. I ended up choosing "Gwen" which I love. My close friends call me Gwen now and I love it and it feels really good to have chosen my name. The problem is this: My family hates my new name and hates the idea of me legally changing it.
I am an adult as I am in my early twenties. But it's difficult to legally change your name when your Mother guilt trips you about it and says "I don't know who you are anymore! If you do this then I won't call you by your old name, or new name- I won't call you anything." and when your siblings call you and quote scripture at you saying "honor your parents!"
My question is: what am I supposed to do here?
