Socialite and model Lauren Bush is currently discovering a new answer to the age-old question, “Whatâ€™s in a name?” Â The relative of former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and founder of FEED Projects is engaged to be married to Ralph Laurenâ€™s son, David Lauren.Â Therefore, she will soon be Lauren Lauren if she decides to take his last name. Â Bush, who began modeling in high school, met David Lauren in New York in April 2004.Â According to People, Bush tentatively plans to solve this ironic dilemma by hyphenating her name. â€śI think it will be Lauren Bush-Lauren.Â Thatâ€™s not final, but I think itâ€™s nice to have the same name as your husband. Â I am sort of old-fashioned in that way,â€ť she said.
What are some ways to avoid having an unflattering last name after marriage?
Though Lauren Lauren is more ironic than embarrassing, last names can be a very sensitive subject in a marriage, especially if they make you chuckle.Â Cupid has some advice on how to avoid ending up with an unflattering last name:
1. Create a new last name: It may not be traditional, but many modern couples have decided to create a new last name by mixing both of their names together.Â This ensures that your child has a part of both your last names without sounding like a law firm.
2. Keep your old name: Your name is part of your identity, and choosing not to change it doesnâ€™t make your marriage any less meaningful.
3. Hyphenation: If you donâ€™t mind ending up with two last names, this might be the way to go.
