I have been Gennifer since I was in the seventh grade, after I decided there were too many Jennifers, and I wanted to be different. Legally I am Jennifer but have used the G on my work papers, school records, etc.
Since I’m getting married, I thought it would be a prime opportunity to go ahead and make the change official.
I’m starting to research name changes and it’s very overwhelming and now I’m wondering if it’s even worth it for just the one letter. Can I continue the rest of my life as Jennifer legally and Gennifer personally/professionally?
Anyone else change their first names? How’d the process go for you? -Gennifer
We’ve talked about changing last names many many times:
- If you could change your last name, what would it be?
- Has anyone gone back to their maiden name after marriage?
- Report from the newlywed trenches: lessons from the first two months with a new name
But we’ve surprisingly never talked about changing first names. Have any of our Homies ever done this? What was your experience like? How was the process?
