    He offered to.  More at first when he was still trying to get me to change mine, though.  But I wasn’t that big on that suggestion.  Then when we’d established we were going to keep our names as they are, he suggested taking my name and dropping his.  Then he changed his mind.

     

    We’re both keeping our names as of right now.

     

    Now I don’t know what we’re doing for any future kids we have.  Seems like they might get my last name as a middle name, with another middle name.  Or the girls will get my last name, and boys will get his.

    @cbgg:  No, I think that would be weird. I am traditional in that sense – I took his name. We are both Russian so it wasn’t a culture shock to change to a different Russian name 😛 My identity is not tied to a name and I don’t know why people get so fussed about it to be honest.

    I would actually LOVE for my man to take my name but can’t see that happening. I hadn’t even thought of him adding it as a second middle name (silly of me as that’s probably what I’ll do)! Seems like a great compromise, specially for kids as I want them to have my name as well.
