I will be doing this also. It seems to be routin in our family


I will be taking his last name, but keeping my last name as a second middle name. I am proud of my name and dont want to drop it completely. But I will say my last name as his last name.

Oh, what a nice way of keeping your name without having a long hyphenated name!

I think with the higher divorce rates of the last decade, families with multiple last names are quite common, so it doesn't bother me at all.

If I don't take Josh's last name, we've already decided that our children will have his last name. But I will probably end up taking his, and just keeping mine professionally like I've been thinking. I don't really have a good reason not to keep mine, except that I'm used to it.

I'm not a very traditional person overall (hell-oo, wedding in the backyard of an inn with a justice of the peace and my Catholic family looking on in horror), but I've always been of the opinion that you get married, you change your name.

Now I'm not necessarily saying that the guy couldn't take the girl's name or something, but I personally can't stand it when a married couple has two different last names. In particular, one reason it bugs me is because of future children. Whose name do they take? And how do they answer when their little friends ask them why their parents have different names?

It just bugs me is all, but to each their own of course!

I am not sure I want to do that either. While I am attached to my name I am not sure this is a battle where I am willing to die on the hill for, you know what I mean? If it is so very important to him and the only reason I am resisting is vanity.... that doesn't really paint me in the best of light.

Do you think he might keep his name and you might keep yours? It sounds like he's pushing for you to change to his. If you do keep your own, just keep in mind that there will probably be some people who will still refer to you as Mrs. His-last-name.

I am also quite attached to my name... it doesn't help that his last name doesn't flow very well with my first name phonetically.... that being said I am not in a position (like a creative writer) where having two names would really work for me. There is much to much cross over.. having two names would just be confusing for everyone. Also he is VERY unwilling to even consider taking my name (Apparently his family has a very distinguished history and he is very proud to carry on the name and so should I) (gah)
... but I think you could manage.

I haven't decided if I'm going to change my name or not. While I know that my name doesn't define me, I am still attached to the one I've had my own life. But I am debating keeping my own name professionally (since I do creative writing) and using his privately.

Are you going to change yours? What made you decide to change it or keep it?
