    Had a family name bestowed on me that noone could pronounce. At 12 I started using my middle name, my father was not happy. When I married, I dropped my first name completely and kept my middle name and took my maiden name as my middle name. I tried to be nicer when I named my own kids!!

    What an interesting topic!

    When I divorced 11 years ago, I had a name change for me written into the decree. I didn't want his last name any more since he didn't want me. I had 2 DDs by different fathers so their last names were not the same, (and one was married anyway). At 57 I didn't feel like taking up my maiden name again after all those years. And besides, MY maiden name was Janet Jackson! True! (**side story below)

    So I legally dropped the "et" from my name, which I had hated for decades, chose a name from my maternal side and a name from my paternal side, put them together legally without a middle name, and it was done. Jan Bennett-Collier

    It has caused me no end of problems over the years because way too many people can't read, pronounce, or use their thinkers......I get Jon Benet/Bennett Cou-li-ay, Mrs. Collier, Mrs. Bennett?, Mrs. uh-Bennett-uh.
    Still, it's distinctive and the only name like it in the country, kinda fun!

    **
    In a class I was teaching 6 years ago, we were talking about name changes and I told the above story about mine. When I mentioned my maiden name, one of the young (late 20s!) women asked, "Oh! Were you named for her?!" :? :| :roll:

    And these people vote!!

    first...used to use both names until I started school and the teacher said there were too many kids to be using 2 names for one child. Besides, I used to think that the sole purpose of a middle name was to let you know you were in deep s*#% when you heard both names.

    I remember my mom (born in 1912) telling me she was not given a middle name and took her confirmation name as her middle name.

    Back in Dallas, I go by my first name. My husband calls me by my middle name which is what I go by in the Austin area.

    The only one to call me by my full name was my aunt, it didn't matter if I was in trouble or not, she called me by my full name!
