When we got married my wife moved from hotmail to gmail but [firstname][lastname] was taken, so she is [firstname][middle initial][lastname]

Aye, she’s not a wedding photographer.

Yeah, sure it isn’t.

by the time she’s old enough to use it, nobody will even remember what email is


is it too late to change your daughters name?

tempted to register this just for something to use when applying for jobs
