@millielue:  yes. I did a thread last week about this. Fiance thinks it’s weird to have different last names. Doesn’t bother me one bit. I came to the conclusion that I am going to wait until a couple months after the wedding to decide. Here’s the post. The other bees had really good things to say about it!

I struggled with this one for a long time, 6 months after my wedding I decided to officially change my name by making my maiden name my middle name, but I totally still go by my maiden name in most worlds…I now answer to two names!

There’s nothing wrong with keeping your own name – my mother did.  We did frequently have to answer silly little questions like “What happened to your father?” 😛

I did not change my name and my DH is fine with it. And surprisingly his family, which is quite conservative, is fine with it as well. 

I’ve only had one person have negative things to say. No one else has said anything to me.

I’m not changing my name, and I know from experience that it’s not weird for kids to have a different last name from their mother (or their father for that matter). It’s really, really not weird.
