So I am having a debate with myself over how I want to change my name. I am American and my fiance is Brazilian, and I can’t decide which tradition I want to follow. In the American tradition, I would replace my last name with his, and our kids would only have his one last name. In the Brazilian tradition, I would tack his last name onto the end of mine, and our kids would carry both names. Essentially this would give me and our kids two middle names on American documents, which is perfectly acceptable. My fiance is ambivalent, as long as I take his name (no question about that from me). What do you all think?
