I’m going to make my maiden name my middle name and it definitely sounds like a last name.  My Mom did the same.

@sydneygal444: I tacked my Chinese last name onto my long Poynesian namewhen I took my husband’s Caucasion name. It definitely doesn’t sound like a middle name.

My maiden name became my middle name and it is just a regular last name.

I have a big long Polish maiden name that is quite clearly a surname as a middle name that I’ll be using with my FI’s one syllable last name.  I’m doing it because I’ve made myself professionally with my last name, and still want to be able to use it on resumes/business cards/etc.  If I didn’t have a job that required networking, I’d probably drop my maiden name for good.

My maiden name is nothing like a first name, and I made it my middle name.

My parents made my mother’s middle name part of our names, so we have four parts to our names: First name FirstMiddle name MotherMaiden name Last name. Our first-middle names are regular names. When I was married the first time, I dropped my mother’s maiden name, moved my last name into the second-middle-name slot, and took ExH’s last name. Hope that helps!
