Amy Duggar 'Can't Wait' to Change Her Last Name

Despite the drama plaguing the Duggar family these days, another member the 19 Kids and Counting crew is going to be walking down the aisle in a few days. But the thing Amy Duggar is looking forward to the most is ditching her Duggar moniker and getting a new name


Which is sort of funny, since she actually changed her last name from Jordan to Duggar a few years ago, presumably to associate herself more closely with the family. Her mom is Jim Bob Duggar's sister, by the way.

Anyway, the reality star is chomping at the bit to share her fiancé's name after they tie the knot over Labor Day weekend. She told People magazine, "I'm so excited! ... But I'm stressed." She added, "We're having a lot of fun with it."

But the thing she's looking forward to most is having a new name. "I can't wait to change my name!" she said. "It's going to be a great day when Dillon signs that marriage license and my last name changes. You have no idea!"

We have some idea, actually. Especially since Dillon has an awesome last name -- King. She also seems eager to distance herself from Jim Bob and Michelle's family. "People have always called me the 'Rebel Duggar,'" she explained, adding, "but I definitely have morals and standards."

She's also not about to let Josh Duggar's cheating scandal ruin her big day. "Despite all the crap going on in my family," she shared, "a few days from now will be an awesome moment."

And she'll be able to kiss the Duggar name good-bye for good!
