The Perfect Name
Eva Longoria hasn’t hyphenated, she simply added her married name onto her own to become Eva Longoria Parker. Ashlee Simpson chose to hyphenate and became Ashlee Simpson-Wenz. When I re-married, I dropped my “old” married name and became a Coffey. My friend Carolyn kept her maiden name, and her kids use her maiden name as their middle names. Many husbands are choosing to hyphenate, and some couples are choosing to come up with a new name for themselves altogether! We have so many options now. So how do we know what is right for us? My friend Kelly Utt-Grubb has become an expert on this topic, and she’s come up with a wonderful audio book that will help you make a choice you’ll feel good about for many years to come. In the audio book, she interviews expert, including me, and real life women who have gone through the process. If you’re getting married, or maybe are just ready for some re-invention when it comes to the name game, check out all Kelly has to offer.
