I had a moderately unusual maiden name.
A consequence of this (apart from always getting your name spelled wrongly!) is that whenever you meet anyone who's heard your name before, they want to know "Are you related?" to whoever they've previously met with the same name.
Turns out I now have a moderately unusual married name! Only now, instead of the usual 'no', the answer is more like "I don't know, I've only had this name for six months".
I'd never thought about it that way before.
