@epalmisano829:  I just feel that it’s tradition and the right thing to do. I love my family and have nothing against my maiden name, but I feel that it shows I am willing and ready to move on to “our” life together. Plus, I don’t like how long it would get to be. My first and middle name are 11 letters already. My maiden is 8 and so is his….So if I kept mine it would be 27 letters long! Uffda!

I changed my maiden name to my middle name, and I took his last name.

I will probably hyphenate my last name. I would gladly change my last name to his. But Fiance really doesn’t care for his name. My first name is super common paired with his last name, smith! I’ll sound like a pilgrim!!! Lol plus Fiance always wished he had his mothers last name. We joke about all changing our last name to hers!

Taking his last name and can’t wait! I have never really cared for my last name and love the sound of his, so I can’t wait to become Mrs. P

I took my husband’s last name. The way I see it, my maiden name was my father’s (and belonged to all of us in that family unit). Now that I have my own family unit, our three children and their parents all share the same last name.

I’m taking his for sure. I hate my last name with a passion.
