    I’m keeping my own. I like it too much to change it.

    @jbbs1222:  I’m a traditionalist and will be changing to his last name only.

    His name is short and common whereas mine was long and foreign so I took his. But man, this name change process is a time consuming bitch.

    I’m adding his to mine, no hyphen, which wasn’t a poll choice.

    I’m in the process of changing mine right now, and I totally understand why people don’t do it!  I’m happy too, but it is weird being called something else, and the paperwork is really annoying.

    I’m taking his. I couldn’t imagine it any other way.

    I loooooved my maiden name. It was awesome. But I took his because i’m old fashioned and that’s how it goes.

    I’m keeping mine. Happily, he comes from a family/culture that respects women keeping their names, so it was never a point of contention. Just as I have no inclination to take his, I have no need for him to take mine.

    I’m taking his. I’m actually not a huge fan of it. His is easier than mine, but mine isn’t a challenge either. However, I’m traditional and want my family to all have one last name. I’m also not a fan of hyphenating, I think it just gets too confusing.

    @jbbs1222:  I like yours hyphenated. Please DON’T flame me but I’m not a fan of the polish last name. I like yours better.

    I will be hyphenating. My last name is short and his is only 2 syllables so it works out fine. Otherwise, I’d retain my own because, frankly, I’m attached to mine and like mine better. I am still thinking about retaining my own in fact. I looked at my ATM card last night and due to my long first name, adding his last name onto mine might be hard to put on one line. Whatevs. 🙂
