I considered shifting the middle, but it seemed more complicated than it was worth — it many states it is NOT as simple as just writing it on the forms when getting married. In my state to change a middle name you have to go to court separately to do so. Did not seem at all worth the effort to me. Socially (like email signature for friend stuff and for work stuff), I go by “First Maiden New” but legally I am First Middle New.

I’m not a fan of my middle name and my fh’s last name is hyphenated so to cut down on having to sign such a long name on legal documents I want to drop my middle name. Plus he doesn’t have a middle name so I don’t want one either lol!
