A Regina couple decided to both change their last names when they got married. Wes Nairne and Bernadette Greffard are now Wes and Bernadette Awesome.
When they decided to get married, both Wes and Bernadette were reluctant to change their last names.
"I didn't want to change my name and she didn't want change her name so we decided maybe we should change it to Awesome," Wes Awesome told CBC. "I was being serious. She thought I was joking."
She was eventually convinced it was real, and most of Wes and Bernadette's friends and family found out about the name change at the wedding.
The hardest part of the name change, though, was convincing Facebook it was real.
But Facebook now confirms: Wes and Bernadette are Awesome.
