Single female colleague (whose hyphenated last name is 29 characters long): Just read your blog post.
SFC: You’re not changing your name [once married] are you?
Me: Actually, yes.
We could talk name-changing convention until the end of time. But at the end of the day, it’s a personal choice and I think it’s odd to give someone grief about it.
Besides…she never asked what I’m changing it to.
