Has anyone changed their first name?

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?

Has anyone gone back to their maiden name after marriage?

I got married a year ago and changed my name. Now, after a year of honest reflection, I can say that I don't like it. I'm currently putting out feelers on resuming the use of my maiden name and in the process, I am running into tons of negativity. Have any of you out there stayed married but went back to your maiden name? How did you handle any criticism or negative feedback? Did you feel better once it was done?
