If you're changing your name after your wedding - will your new name be shorter or longer?

    Shorter! Yay!! I'm going from a long, hard to pronounce/spell last name to literally Mrs. Smith!! Woo hoo!!!

    Don't get me wrong, I love my name. But my whole life I've had to correct spelling and pronunciation, and once I change my name, I'll never have to do that again!!

    One letter shorter. Easier to pronounce for some, though. Barrera to Wilson.

    It will be longer by two letters, which will bring it up to an eleven letter last name.
