Oh wow! That sounds a bit complicated! Have you considered keeping your paternal last name as your middle name? So it would be (first) (original last name) (hyphenated-name)?

marryingjandk:  A classmate of mine had this. Think of Amy Jones marrying Brian Smith-Young. She moved her maiden name to her middle name and then took her husband’s paternal last name (so Amy Jones Young) the kids all have Jones as a middle and Young as the last. Husband still kept Smith-Young, but ended up going as Brian Young socially. It may work well for you.

marryingjandk:  I am thinking his dad’s last name as well, but have you asked him?

If I could have chosen between my parents two last names when I was younger, I would have chosen my mom’s over my dad’s any day.

I’d take his full name, but that’s just me. 🙂
