so I have a suggestion. single girls should select emails firstname.middlename@gmail.com

and not firstname.lastname@gmail.com

 

know why?

 

b/c when they get married they can change their birth certificates, their passports, everything... but they can never change their email without starting over! so girls end up keeping firstname.maidename@gmail.com even after they have changed their name to FirstName Husband'sSurname

Oy.

But anyway, not every girl has a middle name.

What kind of sexist are you, to assume that a wife must take her husband's surname? Feh on that.

Something that I learned from the Imamother "baby names" forum (open to non-members) is that every child must have both a middle name and a nickname.

They should also refrain from using AOL email 


'At the hearing, Judge Craig made no secret about how she viewed the lawsuit, at various points characterizing Geltzer’s positions as “ridiculous” and “absurd”.  Her opinion, while slightly more measured than her comments during oral argument, dismissed Geltzer’s claims as “based on a fundamentally flawed legal theory that is . . . at odds with common sense.” '

Not if the ancestor she was named after didn't have one.

 

What's the word for a parody so serious that it's indistinguishable from something somebody actually believes?

Well, some authorities say that a child should only be named after one person (to avoid confusion), and likewise that a boy should only be named after a man, and (not quite as importantly) a girl should only be named after a woman.

What if a girl doesn't like her middle name? My email address is my first name and my last initial. Should I not find someone with a last name that begins with the same letter, it's not as big a deal, you just have to change the display name.

Right calvin. That would be wise to not change your surname initial.

Alternatively girls could marry their cousin and not change their surname.

I'll put it on the resume: must have last name that starts with same letter as mine so as not to mess up my email address. See how well that goes over.

good idea.

but really -- what's the alternative? what's your end game? would you change your email when you get married (in the right time in good health)?

It seems to me that "is this normal?" is one of the most asked questions on frum sites.  My imamother correspondent found 23 pages of threads there, and I've seen countless (OK, I didn't count) talkbacks on the frum news ripoff sites or shidduch complaint blogs.  You can be normal and steal, but  you're certainly innocent of being a sex abuser.

The most important thing is to give your kids unusual first names in order to ensure that first_name.last_name is not taken by the time they get married.

in theory, i suppose. but still, you are going to have to keep that maidenhead email in perpetuity. i still think better to be prescient and start off with an email you can keep regardless of marital status.
