Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Under a new name

Published: Thursday 2008-07-10.

Since I have married and like the idea of families where everyone has the same surname, I am currently in the process of changing mine so that I will have the same surname as my wife Thea. Say good-bye to Peter Karlsson, and say hello to Peter Krefting. I will update the web site in several steps, but now the blog should show my new name.

By the way, I think it is discriminatory that there is no masculine version of “maiden name”. Sure, there is the gender-neutral “birth name”, but that sounds so politically correct, plus that I have adjusted my name once before I married, by taking an additional first name.

"Förresten tycker jag det är diskriminerande att det inte finns någon maskulin form av ”flicknamn”."

Det kan ju bero på att det inte är särskilt maskulint att byta till sin frus flicknamn.

Gratulerar till giftermålet!

Jag har haft samma problem eftersom familjen tog mammas flicknamn 25 år efter vigseln.
