I can make this on topic again.  Just watch me.  I am the mistress of
making everything on topic.

|Knight-Hayes, Hayes-Knight. I can no longer tell if they sound fine, or

personally, I am always in favor of both parties changing both names to
something new.  So (look, it's a stretch, but I said I could do it), I
think you should both change your last names to Chant.  Or maybe
Konstam.  He was a knight, kind of.
