Well, our plan is for him to take my last name, but now that you mention it, maybe it would be nice for me to take his last name, as another middle name. And he could do this too. so both of us would have 4 names: First Middle Hislast Mylast, usually shortened to First Mylast.

Good idea, I ‘m going to ask him if he’d like for us to keep his
“bachelor name” in our names this way ๐Ÿ™‚

IMO this is a really great idea – i had been tossing things like this around. my father passed away about 2 years ago, and i am the last grandchild on his side with our last name (all his brothers have had girls randomly enough) so i wanted to do something to acknowledge him and how much i love and miss him, but i also want to move forward into my new life with my fiance. 


so what i’m trying to say is, BRILLIANT idea.

I love this idea!  My fiance and I are of different ethnicities, and I always thought it would be weird to take his last name and thereby seem like I was of his ethnicity when I’m clearly not.  Plus my last name is a very typical last name for my country of origin and I like that my roots are reflected that way.  Taking his last name as my middle name is an awesome compromise!

OMG!  This is EXACTLY what I am interested in doing.  My middle name is my mother’s maiden name, and those grandparents have not been good to me, so I’m eager to lose the name.  I am very attached to my last name, however, and couldn’t imagine not keeping it.  


Both my middle name and FI’s last name start with an “S” so I could keep my same initials.
