I've wanted to change my legal name for a very long time, and now I have a sort of deadline. I need to renew my passport in the summer, and this time it'll last for ten years (which is longer than I want to wait) and to change the name on it at a different time would cost a lot of money.
I feel pretty confident about the first name I've chosen, and I promised my mother I'd keep my current first name as a middle name. I currently have two middle names and I'd like to keep it that way, but I'm having trouble deciding on a second one. The surname is also giving me a lot of trouble; the one I'm most attached to doesn't mix well with the first initial I would have. Also it's pretty short and begins with A, though I'm not quite sure why that bothers me
Anyway I guess I just wanted to complain a bit, I've been thinking about this for so many years and I just want it to be over and done with.
