It’s the 21st century, and your relationship with medieval last names is toxic. You’re not sure how it happened, but you know that these four letters have been weighing on you for years now. It’s time to break up with them once and for all! Here are 6 signs that tell you when it’s time to end this unhealthy relationship:
You’re not sure what your medieval last name means, but you know it’s bad.
Your own parents don’t use their medieval last names because they think of them as a liability. Do yours? If so, maybe something is wrong with the whole system!
When you Google “medieval last names,” all you see are articles about why we should get rid of this outdated tradition altogether – and that’s on an unrelated page to where people actually list these types of surnames! It was hard for me to find any positives about my relationship with medieval last names when I searched online..isn’t there anything worth sticking around for? Is it really too late to save us from becoming extinct?
I can’t imagine what it would be like to have no last name at all. It seems so strange and foreign, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad. What am I without my family? Without medieval last names? And what about the next generation of kids – will they even know how important it is for them to inherit this tradition from their parents? That might seem far-fetched now, but when we don’t see any examples of sustainable relationships with medieval last names in our own lives..it feels inevitable. What could save us? Is there something beyond words that you can do as an individual to help preserve this dying part of ourselves through the generations that come after ours?””
