@stephko99:  lol It’s going to be…interesting. His great-great grandfather was from Panama so my Fiance has a popular “spanish-inspired” last name with a unique spelling. 

I’m a Black woman and my Fiance is a Black Jamaican man so clearly this will probably stun some people who speak to me over the phone or email me then meet me in person. 

My name will sound very spanish. We joke about it a lot but I wouldn’t change it. I like it.

I am actually mourning the loss of my last name. I want to share a name with my FH, but I just like mine so much. It’s a very common last name (i.e. Smith, Jones, Johnson), I NEVER have to spell it and I can remain extrememly annonomous (good luck googling me! Ha). 

FH doesn’t have a bad last name, but it’s a very long Greek last name (13 letters). It takes forever to spell and it’s strange to take on the name of a culture that is not your own!

Oh my goodness, I’m going from a very long name that is impossible to spell or pronounce, to a four letter last name! I’m happy 🙂

I don’t dislike his but I’m certainly not taking it. My name represents my identity–both personal and professional–and I can’t imagine having to start over. Happily, neither one of us feels the inclination to change our last names just for the sake of “tradition.”
