From Holden to Kalir

I married in the summer of 2016. My wife – Ebony – and I chose to adopt a new and shared surname, rather than have one of us take the other’s last name. We made this decision for various reasons – from family history to varied circumstances and explanations for why names change across generations. I’m in the process of writing about this change, and the many stories and factors that influenced our decision – it will include reference to the Hebrew poet Eleazar ben Killir, commentary on anti-semitism my grandfather encountered in the academy, and the simple fact that both Ebony and I really like the name Kalir.
