I don’t think it would look weird or funny at all. People will probably figure out it’s your married name.

I grew up in an area where that was very common.  You should be fine.  In my part of Southern California it is very common and no one thinks twice about it.

P.S.  This is not a consideration for me, specifically, but the area I have spent most my life in is about 70% asian – a majority of my peers simply opted for whatever made them happiest.

I agree. People will just assume it’s your married name though I’m not sure it will completely get rid of the “your English is so good” comments. I knew a girl with an Asian first and last name who married and took the last name of her Caucasian husband, and people thought they met while he was overseas in the military (he was never in the military!).
