I would not change my legal name for personal reasons as to if i did not like it because my family gave me the name and even though it had no deep meaning when I was given the name it is a part of me that I would not like to completely change. I would only change my legal name if when getting married, such as if my spouse wants to hyphenate I will gladly do so. The language characteristic that supports my choice is Language Evolves, meaning that thought out time one can change the meaning of word or the action behind it. The reason as to why i would hyphenate when married is several reasons, if my spouse wants to we will, I want both of our last names to be present on our children’s names and it would be an honor to be able to have another represent my spouses family. I believe it will tie me closer to the family and allow myself to be more included.
