No info yet
I haven't looked into the way it works here yet, but I suspected it would likely have to be changed by deed poll rather than usual marriage license even without the first name because we will both be taking a completely new surname, not one of us taking the other's name. I don't mind the extra bother, I'd just like to avoid changing all my details and IDs more than once.
Oh! I hadn't thought of the Vr being what makes it clash, that makes sense, it's no wonder it doesn't fit.
I'm still worried about the flow of the whole name when used in places such as Facebook or Linkedin, I use them for both work and personal life so if I don't have my whole name displayed I will jump from being Vrinda W. to Eva E. with no way for people to know that I am the same person. So it kind of has to be Eva Vrinda E.
And yes! I think my initials might be one of my favourite things about the change, hehe.
Thank you for the reassurance!
Oh! I just posted a similar post a few seconds ago, I thought I checked properly to see if this had already been discussed but I missed yours!
I don't think it's weird at all to want to change to your middle name, that's what I want to do. It's actually a relief to hear that you have the same issues as me because I thought maybe I was just being overly complicated, but you're right about all the paperwork being what's confusing!
Gabriella is a very pretty name. I'd say if you want to do it, go for it!
