Alas, whatever shall my name be

Hi.  I’m back.  I came back from the Surrey International Writer’s conference very excited, BUT easing back into everything and not trying to do everything at once, like last year.  I do, however, have a very important choice to make.  I have to change my twitter name to my name and it only allows 15 characters, I think.

You want people to be able to find you so that once I sell my amazing book, people can find me online.  So I thought I would ask for feedback on my name.  I didn’t really have much input the first time around, so I’m trying to remedy that.

I could be @mariannehansen




I like the first one because I’ve had it the longest.  I have heard one friend tell me Rencher is a more interesting last name and I have had one friend tell me the ‘ch’ in Rencher is harsh while Marianne Hansen is more smooth.

What do you think? 

(And these are the ONLY choices. (people who are thinking things they have always wanted to call me.) And not that there would be any pressure, but it will also be the name I write under.  And really no pressure because I may not take your advice.  But thank you for your time.)
