Titania, you can't start a thread like that without telling us what it is, or else what's the point?

Titania Wed 10-Nov-04 13:56:44

My maiden name was Blower. I bet you can make up half of the jokes yourself, particularly as I played the clarinet.

We like W's in our family. My mum's maiden name was Wilcock. My stepmum's maiden name was Wiggett. My maiden name was Webster. My married name is Walsh. My mum's new married name is Waldron.

I knew a girl at university who's surname was Dyke . I really love my surname so I didn't change it when I got married (actually I think I was just too lazy to sort out all the paperwork).

Mine isn't stupid. It is a perfectly common surname - but it is a pain when chooisng names. Can't have namkes like Jack or Joe, as they dsounf daft.

My maiden name was Veall - which always seemed daft because I was veggie.
