I took his name. 🙂
Taking his. His last name is so classic and people have always had a hard time pronouncing mine. I’m a teacher and I’m sick of having the kids call me “Ms. H”. Plus, I’m excited to be a Mr & Mrs 🙂
I love my last name but hyphenating would look awkward (my last name is two words and nine letters and his is only six letters). I think I’m going to make my last name my middle name, since I don’t have one. 🙂
I went back and forth on this, but I decided to take his last name, simply because I couldn’t bring myself to hyphenate. Also, my fiancee and I will both be doctors, and I liked the idea of being “doctor and doctor Tam”
Not changing legally, because it’s a pain to change and I consider it a privilege to not change only given to international marriage in my country. But I don’t feel strongly about it either way. People can call me anything.
I’m taking his! My name will literally sound like a porn star, but that’s okay. I’m fine with the tradition and I’m excited for our new little family unit 🙂
Can’t wait to take his 🙂
as another bee mentioned, wont be changing lastname because it will be a pain! dmv, insurances, bank accounts, ss, literally everythinggggg… soooo i am just changing it on my facebook.. official enough, don’t you think? 😉
Taking his name as soon as I can!!
I am the last of my father’s name to have his name. My brother chose to take his mother’s name and not our father’s, so I am the last bearer. The name dies with me. Ultimately, I wanted to hyphenate my name, but it sounded strangely and would be way long, so I’m taking my husband’s name.
I’m dropping my last name like a bad habit, and taking his. 🙂
I made my maiden name my middle name, and his last name my last name, so yeah, I guess I took his. 🙂
