Personally, if I ever had the opportunity to change my name I don’t think I would. I like my name Joaquin. I believe I got my name because my mom is really religious and Joaquin is the name of the  father of Mary, the mother of Jesus. I was also given this name because its my dads name. My name does get butcher and mispronounce most of the time but personally this would not be a powerful reason to want to change it. Even to this day if I would ask my own cousin, who at some point lived with me for awhile, how to spell my first name he would misspell my name. My cousin tend to replace the ‘o’ for a ‘u’. I would not want to change my legal name because my parents gave it to me for a reason. I do have both of my parents last names, Sanchez and Ibarra. So if I get marry, sure, I would consider hyphenating my name with my spouse. The thing is that I don’t know how I would do it, if I would leave both of my last names plus my spouse name. I think that would be a really long last name, but at the same time I don’t want to remove one of my last names because I don’t want get rid of part of my name.

One thought on “prompt #1

  1. As far as your first name, I completely understand. I got my name butchered all the time when I was little and it bugged me as well. But in the end, out unique names make us different from everyone else. It is one of the things that will make us remembered. As far as the last name goes, I feel like it would depend on who your spouse is. But when the time is right, it will be a lot easier than it is right now.
