I’m not. I like my last name, and have built a career identity around it’s uniqueness. I plan on taking his name legally but using mine at work.

I never really planned on changing my name anyway but DH’s last name was definitely a factor. It’s not a bad name, just kind of odd. So it made my decision to keep my maiden name easier.

@TwoNerds:  Same with me I am known in my work for my name so I might take both or just his and keep mine as my work name

i strongly dislike his last name and he knows it. It’s one of the reasons why I didn’t take it and I’m so glad I didn’t!

I liked mine soooo much more.  It’s now my middle name since I did end up taking his last name.  I REALLY want our last name to be a combination of our two names.  But I’m not sure I’ll ever convince him.  😀

I’m not a fan at all but I think it has more to do with our different ethnicities.  We are an interracial couple (I’m Latina and he’s Eastern European born here).  His last name sounds like a hockey player’s and mine is a famous conquistador.  His name sounds great with more “American” names but not so much with my very “ethnic” first name.  So yeah, I’m not thrilled.  But it means a lot to him and I want to please him so I will do it (plus I have no attachment to my dad so I don’t care about preserving his name or anything).

That being said, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my signature and have gotten many compliments on it and it took YEARS to perfect so I’m going to miss having that awesome signature.  And no, it can’t be replicated with Fiance last name.  Lol.

I’m not a fan, but it’s more a personal thing. Because of my job, and some of his less than reputable family members, I’m not 100% feeling taking his name.  It’s important to him, however, so I’ve given him hell, but I’m going to take his name anyway.

I like FH’s last name enough but I wonder how people will react when I give my name as Mrs(FH’s last name) as it’s a Pakistani name – almost stereotypical in fact and I’m White British.

FI’s last name is very common but also has a second, sexual meaning. Imagine “Kuntz” – something very similar. My maiden name is hyphenated already so can’t combine the two. And in my home state (NJ) apparently you have to file a legal name change in court to change your middle name to your maiden name – since we don’t live in NJ but are getting married there I don’t have time to go back for court dates!

I think I will legally change to his but keep my name at work.

FI’s last name is very common; in fact, it’s my grandmother’s maiden name and half of my family have the same last name. Sigh. I’ll be taking it though, because I don’t much prefer mine either.
