I was adamant about keeping my name for a long time, but I’ve decided to take the feminine form of my SO’s Russian surname when we finally get married. (It’s the difference between Pavlov and Pavlova, for example.) I think I will keep my Portuguese-Jewish maiden name in mine, just add my SO’s surname to the end. I really love his surname, it means peace/world, and I think it’s beautiful. I’ll end up with four names, and sound suddenly like a much different ethnicity than I started in daily life, but I’ll cope.

I’m puerto rican with an Irish last name marrying a German guy and will be taking his last name. Also my mother remarried and I did not have an identity crisis when I was a child about my mother having a different last name.

My father passed in 2000. If it werent’ for that, I’d have simply taken my husband’s name, but hyphenating is my way of honoring my dad.

I’m Chinese and my SO is Czech, Irish, and Native American (Blackfoot). I will be taking his last name, although I’m on the fence about attaching my last name onto my middle name.

I’m white, my last name is Scottish. He’s Latino, his last name is Basque. I’ll be taking his last name and making my maiden name my new middle name!

I am very white and will be taking my husband’s uncommon, Latino last name. I’m totally looking forward to confusing the heck out of people, too! Especially when they figure out I speak Spanish, lol
