    I love my maiden name. Its extremely uncommon but not unrecognizable or unpronounceable. OH's last name is an extremely common -er ending occupation name. But I will take it anyway because it means a lot to him.

    My family doesn't have any memorable surnames other than my mother's maiden name that is extremely unusual so I don't want to share it. I'm always a tad jealous of those with obviously German surnames like my mother's or Van Der Whatever. I had two former teachers one a Vandergriff which I would love as Van Der Griff and another that I found interesting Vonderhide. My maiden sounds more English than German despite coming from an extremely German family.

    **Side note: A girl in my class wished for years her grandparents had kept Di Giovanni instead of changing it to DeJohn.

    Ooh, someone mentioned Valentine...I had a friend with this last name whom I pretty much only wanted to marry so I could have it!

    Yes Internet sarcasm is usually lost on me ... so I'm not sure why this was posted or how it's funny? Hahaha dollarstein sounds like dollar sign and all Jews love rolling around in beds of money and propagating Jewish stereotypes by non-Jews is so kewl? Erm, no. Try google image searching that. Good times.

    An old friend I went to school with had the surname Van Banekkom. I always loved it strong but still rolls off the tounge beautifully!
