Now and then I come across someone who has crossed a line through their signature. Sometimes the entire signature has a line or several lines through it,
Sometimes just the first name or the last name is crossed through. What does this say about the writer?
- A line or even several lines crossing out the signature alerts me to the fact that the person is dealing with a desire to remake them self.
- Sometimes a line is crossed just through the first name which means the desire is in regard to remaking their personal self.
- If the line is only through the last name the desire is in relation their social self or the family name. This can occur when a woman is getting a divorce. She does not want to be associated with her husband or her husbands name
- If the signature is crossed so much that it is hard to tell what the name is, there is a problem that needs to be addressed as the person is literally crossing them self out. Fortunately I do not see this very often. Have you ever seen it? Do you do this?
Feel free to ask questions. I enjoy discussion. Write with any other questions you have about signatures, yours, someone else or a public figure. It is amazing what you can learn from a handwritten signature.
You may scan in a signature and email me with your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
