So I know this is something everyone talks about constantly, but does anyone have an actual list of all the different things they’ve heard people do with their names or how the childrens’ names would work, etc? I’m just so torn and conflicted.

keep your name, he keeps his.
you both change your names to his
you both change your name to yours
you both hyphenate your names
both change your name to something different
you only hyphenate your name, he keeps his
children get your name, or his name.
girl children get your name, boy children get his (weirdest to me, but it works for some)
FYI i didn’t change my name, DH kept his. When we have children they’ll either have both our last names or mine as a second middle name.

I also think its really interesting how they do it in Iceland- they turn the father’s first name into the children’s last name, example:
DH’s name is Mark, a son would be Firstname Markson, and a daughter would be Firstname Marksdottir (daughter). Women don’t change their name apon marriage. I know Bjork’s daughter is Firstname Bjorksdottir Barney (her partner’s name is M Barney).
