As of today, I have a Jewish last name

My dad isn’t Jewish, and I had his last name (it was so Scottish you’d start spontaneously speaking like Peter Capaldi if you didn’t look out), which occasionally caused confusion, but no big deal usually. I’ve been married to my Jewish husband for years now, but never changed my name. Where we used to live, it was illegal for women to take their husband’s surname, but we’ve since moved, and I’d been thinking of changing it to match my husband and kid. The rising antisemitism was the last push, so today I went and did it. With my first name, I might as well be named Jewess Jewsteinberg now. I fucking love it.
