Lucky you! I assume that was dependent on where you lived, not specifically where you got married? Ill have to check that out!
I will do the American one and the British one - in England its super easy - but since I pay tax, own stuff and drive in both countries, I will need to do both!
It sounds kind of disrespectful to my parents who chose it, but I really dont like it. Especially living in Europe where its super uncommon. I would like it gone ....
Yep, I'm aware it has to be two processes in Michigan I think - changing my last name will be the easy part, but you have to go through some paperwork and see a judge for the first name change
Oh thank you so much for your detailed response!
Yeah, because my first name is a common last name in the UK, they tend to switch the names, thinking I made a mistake filling in the forms.
I probably could go by Gabriella Taylor - just switching them. Picking a new middle name seems a hassle. Your point about #2 - not feeling it reflects me - is really true!
The legal paperwork doesnt bother me so much. It seems to not be too difficult to change the first name in America, as long as you arent trying to commit fraud/ escape the law. In england, you literally file a piece of paper saying "I'm known as this"
I've asked people their opinion -friends and family and them seem quite insistet that I will always be "Taylor" in their mind - and theyll continue to call me that. Either they aren't taking me seriously, but also it is hard to think of someone as a different name. It was suggested to me to pick a more feminine name with the nickname "Tay" which is what a lot of people call me.
Thats a good thing to tell people - especially after I get married I assume most people will just accept that
