    A surname for freelance? Or maybe a nickname?

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking about creating a website to showcase my works and got stuck in what name to use for it. I want to change my current nickname - In2Eternity, it was o'k when I was 15, but now ... eh... you know)) So, one option is just to use my real name, it seems quite o'k, but I'm married, so I have my husband's surname in all documents. "Pro" real name - I sign all documents wuth it, "Contra" - I don't really feel that it is mine and - I trully love my husband, but we never know what in our life can be and maybe I'll have to change my surname again. Or use my maiden name? Or just another name? Or maybe it just does't really matter and nobody bothers?
    Thank you for taking time to read and reply)))

    Don't use your husband's name.

    Otherwise, anything will do. You can take a pseudonym if you want a name associated with yourself instead of the business, especially if you don't care for your own name and/or don't mind that people will call you with the pseudonym sometimes or even always.

    I use my married name as my maiden name is more common. Try googling yourself and different variations.

    I use my own name, although upon reflection I really should have used my husband's because it is easy to spell and pronounce.

    mirichuuei, vineris : Thank you for your feedback)

    Still haven't decided yet, just using real name seems to be the best option.
