My married name is Toon. I was thrilled to take that as my last name, as I am a professional caricaturist/illustrator. I have had many clients call me to ask for my "real name" when cutting a check, or sending me W9 forms, and when I say, "That is my real name," they are stunned.
Some names that cannot work with Toon:
Otto Toon <--LOL
Names that end in T tend to run into the last name.Married since June 2007, expecting our first child on Christmas Day, 2013

The first syllable of my husband's very Arabic surname is na-. Therefore any girls' name ending with -na is out, lest the kid sound like she's stuttering.
I kept my name as it's a big PITA to change it in the doctoring world, and since there is an obvious ethnic mismatch I thought his would sound frankly ridiculous on me. But kid(s) have his name only, no feminist double-barrelling for me.Blade, MD
