It’s roughly Halloween, that means we are already late on your holiday cards. If you’ll be essay your end-of-year minute on interest of yourself, your partner, and maybe your kids, start meditative about your lapse address.

Are we a Smith’s? The Joneseseses? The Gonzalezzz? No, we are not. Check Slate’s elementary draft (via Reddit) to learn how to spell a plural chronicle of your final name.

Of course, if we wish to go crazy, sure, be a Joneseseses. What are your friends going to do, send a label back?


If your family doesn’t all share a same final name, things get some-more difficult fun. You can go with “the Nguyen and Le family,” make a feign hyphenate, or only list everyone’s full name like you’re a TV show’s opening credits.

Or we can spin your names into a luminary portmanteau, like a Rodrigautistas, or a Smicksons. My mother Rachel Fershleiser and we call ourselves a Dougleisers. Most formula sound like a pharmaceutical, though people find it cute.

Just greatfully don’t put an apostrophe in there, or you’ll make a lot of pedants twitch.
