    Hey sistas.

    Yawl might think sista river is bugging (no pun intended) but I was reading and ta man whose last name is Roach came up. I started thinking how he must have been teased mercilessly when he was a kid. I began to wonder how a man named Roach could ever get married and pass his name onto the 21st century. So I am asking you sistas, would you marry a man named Roach? If so would you send your children to school with that name or would you tell them to use a fake name? Would you insist that he get his name legally changed as part of a prenuptial agreement? or would you keep him on the end of a long handled spoon the moment you found out his name?

    I wouldn't be marrying the man for his last name. BUT...Mrs.Roach? Hmmm...I know plenty of women who'd keep their maiden name and not change the last, name even with a hyphen. Mrs. Roach? Hmmm...There are worse names than Roach....

    LOL...I know there are crazier names out there! Though, I wouldn't trip too much on the name itself...not sure though. I guess if his name was like something crazy like ***** or something pronounced as such, or Focker...lol I'd opt to keep my maiden name like MsInterpret mentioned...

    LMBO!

    This topic is so ironic for me!

    I have so often thought about this same thing.

    I went to school with a boy named Andy Roach and I did think about him ever getting married.

    I just don't know if I could go through life as "Mrs. Roach" and I certainly wouldn't want my children called "the little Roaches." (lol)

    So, I'm just thankful that I've never had any interest in a man with such a name.

    ....maybe he could be convinced to add an "e" to the end of it and pronounce it Roa-che'. (lol)

    I'd keep my maiden name.

    One of the funnier and scary last name is "Raper". One of our clients is married and has this last name. All I can think of was him picking up his wife from her parents house for a 1st date. "Hi. I'm a Raper!" LOL

    Nah, I wouldn't mind it, if he didn't mind it. People sometimes clown me for my last name, anyway, so it wouldn't be new to me.
