@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  Interesting. I don’t know any Latinos with hyphenated names! Sometimes they use their mother’s maiden name, too, but I have never seen hyphens. 

My FI is Mexican and we live in a heavily Latino area.

I think it’s super romantic!  It’s beautiful to see that he wants a part of you too.  That rocks!

My fiancé told me he wanted to do that. I him man up, and take the skirt off. I’m not into that, but if you like it, I love it!

I worked with a guy who went from Smith to Othername-Smith.

I couldn’t figure out why, until someone told me that he took his wife’s maiden name and hyphenated along with her so they’d have the same name. I won’t lie. I swooned.

I wanted to hypenate so bad, I’m the last one with my surname and I have no brothers. When I suggested hyphenating to FI, he got really angry about it… he was adamant that he is the man and it’s his job to give me his name, no hyphenating allowed. So we compromised, our kids will have two middle names like me, but their second name will be my maiden name. I can’t remember if I told my dad, but he’ll go to mush when it happens.
