    I’m hyphenating for career purposes, but will eventually change over once people are familiar with my married last name.

    I am either going to hypenate or keep my maiden name as a 2nd middle name.

    I’m taking his name but I’m keeping my last name too. I’m not hyphenating bc our names sound stupid together… but my last name will either be my second middle or I’ll just drop my current middle all together. Undecided about that bit. 🙂

    I’m taking his name. I’ve never known anyone who didn’t take their husbands name (though I know its common with professionals). His name is alot harder to spell than mine is so I’m kind of bummed about that but its definitely not a deal breaker.

    I’m taking his name. He’s excited about it and I am too…my name will be shorter and I move to the front of the alphabet.

    Since I have two separate last names (no hyphen, just a space), I’m getting rid of it.  I’ve been known far too long by that name and I hate it.  I’m going to a very common last name and I’m thrilled!  It’ll also move me up the alphabet Laughing

    I’m struggling with this. I love his last name and I’ll be proud to take it! But I don’t like the way it sounds with my name. I’ve thought about replacing my middle name with my maiden name and accepting his as my true last name, because it flows so much better that way. But I don’t want to give up my middle name either. And I definitely DON’T want to hyphenate.

    I am taking his last name and can’t wait! I kinda hate my last name though, and love my FI’s! Sometimes I wish I could just take it now!

    …I will admit, it will feel weird to not have my last name anymore. I can totally see why so many women keep their last names. If I didn’t hate mine so much I would probably have some serious separation anxiety.
