brangelina gone too far?

Yesterday on Slate I read an article about how married couples are now meshing their last names together. I hate to admit this, but I'd probably be one of those people that think this is adorable if our last names would lend themselves. Rodrigo, well, I doubt he'd ever go for this and when I told him about it he said it was silly. The thing is that our last names wouldn't blend well, so I definately wouldn't do it. We'd be stuck with something like Burro, Rogos or Burjo. Those are pretty bad. Burro was my favorite, I think that name would suit Rodrigo ;P. So, what do you think of this trend? Can something like this actually stick? What would your new last name be?

feeling: ALLERGIES!

Hah Niel wouldn't go for it. My name was too long and now I have a shorter one so now I am happy. It was wierd giving up my maiden name though. Although when I get published I use both. I know two people who after marrying combined names.

Finally!! The "visual verification" thing has been displaying no image for the longest time. Silly thing. Anyhoo ... they talk about this idea in Father of the Bride. I almost think it's worse because no one's family name is retained. I wanted Matt to take my last name because mine was nice, but fairly unique and his is pretty widely used. But I suppose we could have been the Nickers. ;)

My husband and I used to joke about this before we got married...over 11 years ago! Imagine if we'd done it...what trend setters we'd be. The results would have been too awful though...Kursnap was the best we came up with and it was just too bad.

We don't really have a funny combined name but we have to be careful what we name the kiddos. No Grace or Rocky or Clay's for us!
