Approximately 50 (ish) years ago my husband's grandfather changed the family name. There were too many people with the same name and as an important man he was tired of being confused with someone else.
Now, my husband is tired of the fact that the name his grandfather invented often gives rise to racist comments - sad but true.
Therefore we have decided to take the plunge and change our family name back to it's original - Anglicised of course.
So.... one of my books would look like this...
"And so," I hear you cry, "What do the K and the J stand for?"
Well, as you may or may not already know from following me before - my name is Karen.
That explains the K..... and the J?
My middle name of course! Jane. :o)
So my new name is Karen Jane Palmer.
