Woohoo! I’ve been wondering about this! Now if Wyoming denies me I know I can just head south! 😉
“Following numerous complaints stemming from a new rule on newlywed name changes, the Division of Motor Vehicles has decided to give women more choices when picking their married monikers.
In mid-November, a new set of DMV directives barred women from taking their maiden names as their middle names on their driver’s license unless they obtained a court order. Less than a month later, the division is striking that rule, effective Dec. 15.”

That’s great! I plan on keeping my middle name and only changing my last name, but I’m very glad to hear that others will have more options.

That’s what I did – I’m rather attached to my maiden name and made it my middle name when I married my (first) husband. When I got married in April, I did the same thing… firstname maidenname newhubby’slastname.
Besides, I’m from the South, and apparently it’s the way things are done there… there was never any question in my mind that I’d keep my father’s last name somewhere in there!
