    Changing My Last Name

    I've been thinking for a long time about whether or not I should change my name. It's a fairly common last name and my first name is fairly uncommon (Ari@dne).

    Some names I've considered are:

    Martin/Mars - family names, but I'm not completely sold on either, especially with the Bruno Mars association. Plus, I don't think Ari@dne Martin has a great ring to it.

    George - common name on my maternal side, but I'd feel like Regina George...

    Peregrine/Pelegrin- I love the meaning, "pilgrim", my mom's surname (Roemer) also means pilgrim and it's the name I would have had, had she not reconciled with my father right before my birth. I also found out a few months ago that my maternal great-grandfather's parents surnames both mean pilgrim, so that seemed cool/odd/lucky. Pelegrin is my maternal great-great-grandmother's surname.

    I've been strongly considering Peregrine/Pelegrin, but would that be too much of a mouthful? I have no middle name, but my first name is hard enough for most people to pronounce.

    I haven't started my professional life yet, but I will soon. If I do this, I think it should be now. I'm just not sure what to do.

    Sorry for the super long post. Any help would be much appreciated!

    First off, I love your name! Ari@dne is very lovely.

    My favourites are Ari@dne Mars and Ari@dne Peregrine. I don't really think about Bruno Mars before you mentioned it, really.
