None of us automatically have a signature, so how did you develop yours? Did you practice different styles until you settled on one you liked? Did you just make one up the first time you needed to sign your name? Did you copy someone else's style?

I observed different people signing their names. My mother has the most beautiful old fashioned writing (not printing ). Her writing is much like calligraphy. I copied her writing style, adapted it to incorporate pieces of other signatures that I had seen and liked, and just relaxed their styles to suit me.
Through trial and error when growing up. I looked at other signatures that I liked and tried to follow . I do not have the best penmanship so my signature is nothing to speak about.
I spent an afternoon practicing mine, deciding how many initials I wanted to use.
Over time, it just 'flowed', & have had the same signature now for over four decades'

My 'maiden name' signature differed greatly to my 'married name' signature.

When I look at my school-girl writings', they're really different to my 'writings' that I've been doing for a long time now.

If I wish to 'pen' a note of any description these days', I use my good-quality 'Parker Sonnet' Fountain Pen, as it 'slows' me down!

For five years' my job involved 'printing' i/o writing, so the latter was just terrible, & it never recovered, hence use of 'fountain pen'!

Both my late Father, & husband, ALWAYS wrote with Fountain Pen.
That was the way our Generations' were taught!

I wanted my signature to have some flare. I practiced different signatures until I found one I prefered. That is the one I chose. I have recently had to give my signature some thought again. I developed a variation of my signature for my art. I put 16( for the year ) then my name in one direction and my name in mirror writing in the other.
I think over time it just came to be, if I am totally honest.
So long ago now...
I do remember one day I had to sign a lot of documents, with my husband for a new house and it never changed after that.


By signing thousands of documents per week.
My signature is really a super scrawl.

Like donjo, my maiden name and married name were so different that it took practice to get something that looked right. Also, it's all consonants bumping into each other and it's not pretty.

My dad is my role model and to have a signature similar to him has been key.
I think I just wrote it till it came easily and I liked what I wrote - it is so long ago, it is difficult to remember!
