I'll make this short as we are being asked to go to the opinion board. Wish my family had thought of your family's creativity - that would have been completely acceptable and appreciated. Also, regarding the last names listed in one response - to the Southern traditionalists in my family (including me I'm afraid,) a shocking faux pas is to use a last name that is *not* in your family or part of a personal connection. What is the point? they would say. The name has to have a point, a personal connection - although not so for many modern couples who are tired of the same ole retreads! :)
