I posted this question last night but didn't get many answers so I'm hoping I will be more successful today. There is a reason for this question...If you had an embarrassing last name...

such as Bahls, Beaver, Dick, Raper, Schit etc. would you change it?

  • No, I wouldn't change it. But even when it's not a bad name on it's own, It bothers me when parents purposely make it worse for the kid. Some are cute ie: Candy Cane, Holly Wood. But if your name is Bahls - Don't name your kid Harry.

  • Probably wouldn't change it, probably would get picked on though.

  • If youre not close with your family and feel so personal ties with them yes, or else youre opening up a can of issues.

  • No, I wouldn't. I would have grown up dealing with it.

  • No, last names mean a lot to most people. My last name means a LOT to my family.

  • Yes. I'm going to be a midwife, so all of my clients will know my last name! I think a name can hold you back sometimes (not always). Then again, people would surely remember me!
