I’m looking at the double-barreled, non-hyphenated last name route as it is allowed in my state. So it will be my first name, my middle name, my last name, his last name. I know that I do not want to change my middle name, I do not want two middle names, and I am not fond of the hypen. Fiance is fine with it, he said it doesn’t matter to him as long as his last name is in there somewhere.

I don’t plan to take his. Partly it’s out of tradition (my mom kept her last name, so I view that as the norm), and partly it’s preference (I love my last name, I’m a self-employed individual whose name is her brand, his last name is hilariously unpronounceable/unspellable!).

haha nope! My first name and his last name together would be disasterous haha. And it’s quite a hassle to get all the documents changed. I have no issues with our future kids taking on his last name though :).

Hyphenating. My name is pretty long already so adding a hyphen and five letters won’t make much of a difference lol.

He’s taking my last name.

@Katyxa: I used to think that I would never change my name. I always felt like I didn’t want to “lose” that part of me just because I got married. However, we have a child now and I want all of us to have the same last name. It was also something that was important to him.
