The flow is perfect and I like the name Lacey too.  I'm asking myself if I would have noticed the bride thing if you hadn't pointed it out.  I think I would have.

Change the surname?   Or maybe Macey Brideson?

I am seeing Lacey Bride, sorry. I'll admit it probably doesn't help that I'm not a fan of Lacey at the best of times.

Sorry I'm another who doesn't think they go together well. What about Lucy instead?

I'd prefer Maisie brideson which is similar to Lacey but not so smilar you'd get Lacey bride

Not keen on Lacey as a name personally, but it goes OK with your last name - I wouldnt worry about 'Lacey Bride'

I agree with this.

I Looooooove Lacey, it is in my girls names list or sure.

I don't think it sounds bad at all with your surname.

I wouldn't go with Lacey, as she might not turn out to be a feminine/frilly/girls/lacey type girl/woman.

This completely for me.

There's  probably 65 L names that I'd prefer with your last name and in general.

I had to drop a few of my favourite names that I had for years after I took my husband name, and they really were bad when said together.

Time to think of another name you love.

When I look at 'Lacey Brideson' I see Lacey bride, but when I say the name out loud I hear 'Lacey Brideson' which I think is a gorgeous name. Yes people will probably think 'Lacey bride' if they see it written but I doubt many will think of it when they hear her full name.
I say use it. It's a lovely name.

I had to drop a number of names with my DH's surname.
I'm a fan of Lacey, but not with your surname sorry.

I'm not a fan of Lacey but I think it goes fine with your surname.

TBH I don't think lacy is that natural an adjective to go with the word Bride. If I were to describe a bride I don't think I would resort to the word lacy over eg blushing or beautiful.

Although I do love the name Elaine and can see Lainie as a NN so would prefer Lainie over Lacey...

elana nn laney
Delaney

What about women who marry men that have last names that dont sound right. I certainly didnt consider that when marrying DH and often they live with that name much longer. I say if you love it, go with it!

I thought of that when marrying my DH. If his last name had of been something that rhymed or started with a 'sh' sounding I wouldn't have changed my name.
His surname is much cooler than my maiden name wink.gif

I like the name Lacey - but yes I can see the issue with Lacey Bride and I agree Lacey Brideson is not an ideal combo - but not so terrible that it is unusable.


On the other hand, I do really love Lucy and that would solve the dilemma wink.gif

If there had  been anything drastically wrong with my DH's name either on its own or with my name, I wouldn't have changed it?

I actually haven't changed it anyway officially... just because I CBF dealing with the embassy about my passport.

I have no problem with it.
Even if people did associate it with bride, I don't think it has negative connotations.
When she gets married, she may decide to change it anyway.

I think Lacey is pretty but with the surname it's less than ideal.

Depends on how much it bothers you OP?
