Taking his. His last name is so classic and people have always had a hard time pronouncing mine. I’m a teacher and I’m sick of having the kids call me “Ms. H”. Plus, I’m excited to be a Mr & Mrs πŸ™‚

I love my last name but hyphenating would look awkward (my last name is two words and nine letters and his is only six letters). I think I’m going to make my last name my middle name, since I don’t have one. πŸ™‚

I went back and forth on this, but I decided to take his last name, simply because I couldn’t bring myself to hyphenate. Also, my fiancee and I will both be doctors, and I liked the idea of being “doctor and doctor Tam”

Not changing legally, because it’s a pain to change and I consider it a privilege to not change only given to international marriage in my country.  But I don’t feel strongly about it either way. People can call me anything.

I’m taking his!  My name will literally sound like a porn star, but that’s okay.  I’m fine with the tradition and I’m excited for our new little family unit πŸ™‚

I am the last of my father’s name to have his name. My brother chose to take his mother’s name and not our father’s, so I am the last bearer. The name dies with me. Ultimately, I wanted to hyphenate my name, but it sounded strangely and would be way long, so I’m taking my husband’s name.

I made my maiden name my middle name, and his last name my last name, so yeah, I guess I took his. πŸ™‚
