I solved the last name dilemma!
We’ve been back and forth and back and forth about changing them, not changing them, hyphenating, not hyphenating…but I finally have the answer. Thanks to an offhand facebook comment from a friend’s mother, I’ve decided to make a new last name out of an anagram of both our current last names!!
Here are my favorites so far:
Pinto and Atticus __fill in the blank__
