Prompted by an off the cuff question from my friend Ellie when I told her about the consent order, I have been pondering whether to start using my maiden name again. To change it would be a public declaration of my (soon-to-be) single status – a new name for the new me – and part of me likes this idea. But… I’ve been known as Rebecca Green for so long, I use Green at work, and of course, my children have this name. It’s not a simple decision and at the moment I’m not ready to change it.
Whatever I decide, I will continue to be known as Dr. Green at work. Actually, and I’m thinking as I type, that could be a good compromise: I can be known as Dr Green at home too. That way I don’t have to use “Mrs” – unless I choose too!
