Jennifer Garner changing name to match daughter's

12/26/2005 at 12:33 PM ET

According to WENN, Jennifer Garner has taken husband Ben Affleck’s last name and become Jennifer Affleck.  They cite a donation to Massachusetts gubernatorial hopeful Deval Patrick’s campaign where she signed her name as Jennifer Affleck. 

Most likely she is just changing her legal name and not her professional name.  When Jennifer was married to Scott Foley, she went by "Jennifer Foley" personally until their divorce.

(I wonder if J.Lo would have done this had she and Ben stayed together.)

I think that’s refreshing! I am sure her professional name will still be the same, but you never know! She may hypheniate it for work. Jennifer Garner-Affleck doesn’t sound too bad! Thats cool IMO!

J Lo. said in an interview when they were engaged that she was planning on changing her name to Jennifer Affleck, but keeping Jennifer Lopez as her professional name.

I think Jennifer Garner-Affleck sounds good too!
