    I've never wanted to change my name but I've thought about wanting to change the spelling of it to Meghan. I had the chance to do it when we got married but I didn't. My parents chose the spelling of my name for a reason. My mom has mentioned that "Meghan" was a way they did think to spell it though.

    I wanted to change my names as they are so old fashioned: Margaret Edith. I liked that my middle name was the same as one of my sisters (the one who passed away) but I hated Margaret. The only other Margaret's in school were teachers that were very old! Never did come up with a name that I wanted it changed to. My mom said that when she found out my middle name she knew I was meant for their family When I was reunited with my biological family I found out that I was named after my grandmothers so I am happy that I did not change it.

    Sometimes I wish I had kept my maiden name... just liked it a lot better than my married one.

    I've never even thought about it. I don't particularly like being called Stephanie...I much prefer Steph. My middle name is Anne, after my Great-Grandma Anne. I loved her so much and love that I'm named after her.

    Margaret...I love old fashion names. You have a very pretty name. Child mentioned...our middle DD middle name is Margaret. I always wanted the name Charlotte or Scarlett as a child's name for a girl. That middle name would've been Lavinia after my great grandma.

    @Meg- Charlotte was one of my baby names and my cousin who I am really close to just named his daughter Charlotte. He didn't know that it was one of our names. I just love that name though. Lavinia is pretty too. Have you ever watched "Downton Abbey"? One of the characters is Lavinia.

    I've never watched Downtown Abbey. I always thought Lavinia was pretty. I always wanted a boy middle name to be Kirchner (pronounced "kirk-ner"). My other great-grandma's last name was Kirchner and that is my dad's middle name. There were no boys to carry on that name as a last name. I always like the names I picked out...Charlotte Lavinia and Beckham Kirchner...but I never got to use them. Child mentioned....the funny thing is that when I was younger I loved the name Madelyn. Well, I got a Madeleine (the "ei" is pronounced with an "i") when I married DH so that's close enough.

    My brother is the last male with our family name. He had 6 girls, maybe one will keep their maiden name...

    It's kind of sad how a name can dwindle away over time. My boy cousin was the only boy out of 13 grandchildren. Luckily he had a boy to keep the name going.
