    I dropped my maiden entirely because I didn’t want to lose my middle name and didn’t want 2 middle names either.

    I am taking his and dropping mine!  It was very important to him and ultimtely it was most important to me to have our family all have the same name!

    I didn’t want to totally drop mine, but I didn’t want to drop my middle name either, so I’m just keeping my maiden and not hyphenating – but I’m not signing it, either. I will sign as First Name/His Last Name.

    When I do get married I plan on taking his last name or maybe a hyphen not too sure yet.

    I know a few people who made their maiden name their new middle name and took their husbands last name.

    To each her own.

    I got rid of my maiden name completely, but I wasn’t too emotionally attached to it.  My name now is MyName MiddleName NewLastName.

    I’m getting rid of mine… to me, it kind of goes along with giving myself entirely to him… I don’t need my last name anymore 😛

    I’m dropping my maiden name. I really kind of hate it, haha…I’m really excited to have a last name that doesn’t stress people out – NO ONE knows how to say my last name!

    I’m pretty sure I’m going to drop my last name and take his.

    I’m taking his last name and making mine my middle. We don’t have any boys in the family to carry on the name, so I definitely want to keep it. I would have hyphenated, but my last name is 5 syllables and his is 3 :).

    It was pretty important to him that I take his name. So I’m swapping my huge difficult to spell/pronounce last name for HIS huge difficult to spell/pronounce last name, lol.

    I think I’m leaning to hyphenating or having 2 last names (as opposed to two middles).
