Trend: meshing

800 British couples have ‘meshed’ their surnames this year, according to the UK Deed Poll Service.

Meshing is fusing together two surnames to make a new one and is the latest trend that has crossed the Atlantic.

What started out as lazy writing by journalists (‘Brangelina’, etc) has become a fast-growing trend with couples in their twenties and thirties.

Real examples include:

Miss Price and Mr Nightingale became the ‘Prightingales’ (…)

Mr Pugh and Miss Griffin became Mr and Mrs Puffin.

Word.
