George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin tied the knot a few days ago and now the entire world is wondering what’s next for the newlyweds. Will Amal change to her married last name? Will they start a family? Where will the live? While it’s none of our business, it’s fun to speculate!
Clooney’s bride is 36, which will affect her name change decision. Statistically, the older the bride is at the time of marriage the more likely she is to keep her maiden name in some way. Perhaps she will hyphenate Alamuddin-Clooney or take her maiden name as a middle name. We think Amal should play the MarriedNameGame to see what her ideal name change option is based on 8 key name change factors in her life. Whatever name change option she chooses (or doesn’t), we wish both George and Amal a marriage filled with love and happiness that lasts a lifetime.
