[Blind Gossip] When women get married, they sometimes face a dilemma about what to do with their name.
Does Jane Smith keep her last name the same as her parents? Or does she take her spouse’s name and become Jane Jones? Or does she try to use both as Jane Smith Jones or Jane Smith-Jones?
If she has a professional career – or is a celebrity or is part of a famous family – changing her name could also present some branding challenges.
This daughter from a famous political family is now facing this very question.
She has decided to seek a political career of her own. However, her name is proving to be an internal point of contention.
There was this big discussion about whether she should use her family’s last name, her husband’s last name, or use both.
There was an entire meeting – seriously, an ENTIRE FREAKING MEETING – about what name she should use. The pros and cons of branding or rebranding or keeping or changing or blending or whatever.
People were taking it very personally and fighting about it. It got so heated that some people actually walked out. It was a mess!
No firm decision yet.
