I want to change my name for a few reasons... Largely because I'm named after my father and my father has been nothing in my life. Secondarily because I want to opt for a gender-neutral name.
 
I've settled on Erin Maus. Unsure about the middle name right now: thinking Eliot, after my favorite poet. "Erin Eliot Maus" sounds very nice, too.
 
...but it looks very confusing. It's been eating at me for a while but today I asked my brother and he's okay with it so I'm thinking of going ahead before the holidays. I won't tell my extended family ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

If its an important enough change to you that it will justify all the practical problems that follow it then go for it.

Got my computer finally all put together. I'm pretty excited to have a nice computer to do CAD work on.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I feel like if you're gonna go for a middle name, you should pick as weird of one as you can. Wikipedia says you're only allowed apostrophes and hyphens, so I would suggest going with " 'E-l-i-o-t' "

I guess " 'E'-'l'-'i'-'o'-'t' " is just kinda too bulky.

The Mcgregger team was shouting racist crap the whole match, so Khabib figured he could swing at them too


Also 2 presidents that lost the popular vote ha e shoved 4 people into the current SCOTUS. Total disgrace.

Nonsense...the American electoral college is designed to have locational diversity in elections, so that the entire country is represented, not just its most populous areas. Until the voting process is changed to simple majority of votes, a president elected with sub 50% is just as legitimate as one elected with above 50%.

If you think popular vote is the panacea of democracy, you should advocate for a constitutional amendment, not imply presidents are illegitimate. Also, there's no such thing as "shoving" a justice onto the supreme court - pretty sure the nomination and confirmation processes are exactly the same for all presidents. Anyway, I suspect your feelings on the matter have more to do with political disagreements than legitimate issues with the processes

Just for the record, 60 senators down to 50 was a pretty significant change. And I'm not sure it'll be all that great when Democrats nominate equally polarizing figures next.

I think we can agree a huge part of the issue is partisan based. 2 parties simply aren't enough, especially when they seem to be in an arms race with each other as to who can come up with the bigger [wagon] every November.

The nature of the first past the post voting system means that it's in your best interest to vote for one of the 2 major parties, and even a political system with many, relatively equally popular parties that adopts fptp will trend towards two relatively centrist parties. Unless America changes its voting system, we're unlikely to get more than two parties.

Even the most successful third party (the Progressives) managed less than a decade of relevancy before we morphed back into a 2 party system.

Can we all just pause our debates/discussion for a minute just to appreciate that Tyler changed his name? Really throwing me off every time I see the claw followed by "Tesset" instead of the usual.

Don't think it has too much to do with FPTP. Canada has FPTP, and eight different parties in Parliament... similar situation in AUS as well, for example. I don't agree that it's in anyone's best interest to vote for one of the major parties even if they disagree with them, that's exactly the attitude that leads to only two major parties. I think a much bigger issue is political ignorance than anything

Oh, so she did.

I guess I use avatars to identify people more than names.
 

I want to change my name for a few reasons... Largely because I'm named after my father and my father has been nothing in my life. Secondarily because I want to opt for a gender-neutral name.

I've settled on Erin Maus. Unsure about the middle name right now: thinking Eliot, after my favorite poet. "Erin Eliot Maus" sounds very nice, too.

...but it looks very confusing. It's been eating at me for a while but today I asked my brother and he's okay with it so I'm thinking of going ahead before the holidays. I won't tell my extended family ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

E.E. Maus
Erin E. Maus
E. Eliot Maus

With Erin and Aaron being pronounced so similarly, you really don't have to tell anyone who isn't involved. Think of all the presumably well-meant "you'll always be $deadname to me" you'll avoid.


I've legally changed my name twice so far, and likely will at least once more. Maybe I'll even bother to update my birth certificate.

My current legal name is masculine, but has at least two gender-neutral diminuitives, one I use at work and another I use everywhere else. There's a third diminuitive which I've always seen as feminine, but it's supposedly not gendered. I'm thinking of making the name I use most places my legal name.
My middle name has been mistaken for a family name; it shows up on legal documents and I don't use it... I'm really considering just doing away with it. Who needs so many names anyway?
Had I not taken my wife's surname, I likely would have gone with a variant of Wolf/Wolfe.

I think a big difference here, on some level at least, is how they elect their president and senate/congress differently. In Canada and AUS, so far as I know, we elect our area representative and then the leader of whatever majority party (most seats) becomes the Prime Minister or the leader of our country for all intents. Versus basically two very distinct elections with one for area representation and one for leader happen in the states, which I think feeds back into more of a two party system.

Definitely true on the presidential election, but congressional and senate are actually much more important. Constitutionally, these bodies are much more powerful than the president (though recently they haven't cared much to exercise that power)
