Changing my surname. Which name? Watch

    My parents are getting divorced and I don't want my father's name any longer. I don't like my mother's maiden name so my mum and I are thinking of a new surname for me.

    Any suggestions? It ends in 'a' by the way so I don't want one which begins with a vowel.

    What's your first name?

    Might help get one that sounds nice. For example I could suggest you have: Moody, Jolly, Higgs, Saunders but they might not sound right with your name.

    Yeah, without knowing the first name it's difficult to pick a last name

      Speaking from experience with a dodgy surname (can't pronounce all the letters when saying it aloud), my advice is just get one easily spelled/pronounced
