Curious about Ariana Grande’s married name change? The lovely singer married Dalton Gomez in an intimate ceremony last weekend! We’re SO excited for her! Does this mean she’ll become Mrs. Ariana Gomez or Mrs. Ariana Grande-Gomez? Our experts weigh in below.
From all of our name change studies and statics, we know that one major factor in a woman’s name change is her age at the time of marriage. Ariana is 27 years old, so her youth make it more likely that she will be adding a Mrs. to her name soon!
Another key factor is a woman’s employment. Newlyweds who have careers tied to their names, such as doctors, lawyers, and famous singers tend to keep their maiden names in some way. Perhaps Ariana will add Gomez as a second last name or take it as a middle name.
While known factors can definitely shape a woman’s name change choice, it is a personal decision. No two people or relationship are alike. Many MissNowMrs clients have told us that changing their last name made them feel “more connected” to their spouse or symbolized that they were “all in” on their marriage.
There are many celebrities who have opted to change their names after marriage like Katie Perry and Heidi Klum. We will all have to wait and see what happens with Ariana Grande’s married name change. Our expert prediction is on some form of name change for this newlywed!
If she does elect to become a Mrs., we’d love for her to use the MissNowMrs app to save 13 hours of hassle!
