My dear husband to be and I are having a name change dilemma. Neither one of us wants to keep the last names we have, however, we also don’t want eachother to take our last names. Let me explain. We both have deep rooted, long standing issues of our own with our fathers and neither one of us is proud to carry our own last names. Husband to be suggested that we take his mother’s maiden name. He was close with his grandfather and would be proud to have his name. I’m neither really for or against this suggestion. HTB said that since I didn’t agree with it right away that he wants to just nix the idea all together. I told him to just give me some time to think about it, because the idea had never crossed my mind. I would love some advice, suggestions, or stories of your own. Have any of you completely gone with a different last name? Have any of you had issues with last names on both parties side? Thanks for your input!
