A California man has taken to his Twitter page to reveal that he is taking his wife’s last name.
The man who was formally known as Ryan Morrison disclosed that he will now be called Ryan Mihoshi as he was now answering his wife’s surname.
According to him, his grandfather was a priest yet went ahead to have a secret family and he picked the name “Morrison” so they would never be traced back to him.
Read his tweet below;
Hey y’all — I’m getting married tomorrow and taking my wife’s name. Had to make a rebrand joke, srry. See thread for why I’m taking her name.
Long story short, my grandpa was a priest, wasn’t allowed to get married, and had a secret family. As a way to help keep this all hidden, the kids were all given the last name Morrison — as the story goes — chosen by opening a phonebook and pointing at random.
On the other hand, my wife’s last name comes from her Japanese father, and can be traced back for hundreds and hundreds of years. Since my father-in-law doesn’t have siblings, and my wife only has a sister, there’s not a whole lot of people to carry on the Miyoshi name.
I figured her name is the better choice out of the two, so why not! As of tomorrow afternoon, I will no longer be Ryan Morrison, and instead: Ryan Miyoshi.
Another fun fact: The Miyoshi’s have been living in California for more generations than my own family has been in the US!
