Changing your name? That is

Changing your name? That is something I know something about. My advice: Do Not Change Your Name Before The Age Of Thirty. Why? My last name (my real one, and this is privileged information) is W********. I thought it was cool at the time. I’ve been embarrassed by it for years. Sure, it’s special, and it means something to me, but jeeze that’s mighty new age. I refuse to change it again because I feel it’s a kind of justice for doing something stupid. Kind of like getting a huge tattoo that says “Bob”.
