So my fiance’s last name is terrible and I would never take it. I have almost no attachment to my last name. He has two middle names. I would like us BOTH to take his 2nd middle name as our last name. So his name would be firstname middlename secondmiddlename.
How the world do we do that? Do we have to get legal name changes as opposed to just writing it on the marriage certificate/getting a new social/drivers license/etc??
If it helps the wedding will be in AZ.

“my fiance’s last name is terrible and I would never take it” this made me laugh!
As far as I know, you have to go through the whole process as if you were inventing a new last name. He could do that first and then it’d be easier for you to take it when you get married.

I should add that he’s fairly willing to do all of this. He was teased a LOT for his last name as a kid. I would hate to have his last name hahahaha.
Edit: I think youre right. I think he would have to hange his last name then when we marry I’ll just be taking his name. Ooooh thats interesting. $300 fee…
