Caroline’s recent book crush, author Lauren Winner, has got me thinking of last names. Since I am currently unmarried, (and don’t have a certain boy in mind that I’d like to hitch myself to permanently,) my future last name is still up for grabs. As someone who sees all things as opportunities, this gets me thinking. Wouldn’t it be a great strategic move to use this “new last name” thing for the greatest gain? Like, marry someone with a cool, funny, or random last name just for fun? Yes, this does really cross my mind. Therefore, when I meet someone with a cool last name, I can’t help but think…
Do they have a brother? 🙂
Here are some last names I’d love to get my hands on. (All real)
-Christina Nation (Christina Nation sounds like a SWEET PLACE!)
-Christina Winner (Lauren has got to feel good about herself in the morning with an affirmative last name like that)
-Christina Pigg (at least my middle name wouldn’t change to ISA- but still…)
Some names I would NOT like to marry into.
-Christina Butt (kids would get beaten up, for sure)
-Christina Lame (opposite of the daily affirmative, daily downer!)
-Christina Pain (If I became a doctor, kids would not want to come to me with this last name)
-Christina Fager (Couldn’t do this to my kids either)
-Christina Mrtwentyfourhours (oops, that’s not his real name, just what my co-workers call him… 😉 )
-Christina Lowersherstandards (just kidding- this one’s not real)
Any other last names I’m missing?
