    I am just replacing my maiden with my FI’s last name. Starts with the same letter, so my initials won’t change ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am just changing my last name.  I never considered changing my middle name…that would sound really odd to me because my last name is, well, a little odd.

    I don’t have a middle name now and when I get married I am just going to drop my last name and pick up his. I always said that I would break my first name in two (I have a long first name) and then I would have a middle name and my husband’s last but his last name sounds awful with the first part of my first name.

    I have no idea! I can not decide! I don’t wanna give up my last name because i LOVE it and its ME. If i add his i will have the LONGEST name. I like his n all but if i change mine my brother will be the only 1 with our last name left and if he doesnt have kids it will be gone in our family!

    When my Grandfather came over on the boat the officer spelled his last name different then all his brothers and sisters!

    My mom uses the first letter of her maiden name as her middle name.  I don’t know what I want to do yet.  I’ll probably just drop my last name and keep my middle name, but I’m still debating.

    Do people add their maiden to their middle name? Is that possible? I like my last name ๐Ÿ™ and my fiance’s is really hard to pronounce! My poor kids are going to be the ones that have to spell out their last name every first day of school ๐Ÿ™ haha

    I voted for the second option….but I don’t have a middle name to replace. It will be more like sliding my last name over to the left one place.

    @Min, I’d never heard of anyone dropping her middle name and using her maiden name as her middle name until I started posting on Weddingbee.  The idea does make sense.

    However, I am rather attached to my middle name, even more so than I am to my maiden name, so I plan to just keep my first and middle names as is and adopt my husband’s last name.

    I’ll be [First][Middle][Married], althought I’ll probably use [Maiden][Married] for a while socially.

    My maiden name will become my middle name. My middle name didn’t hold any special meaning or anything and I think of myself as (for example) Jane Smith, not Jane Marie. I like that my family name will live on in my name.

    I’m undecided about what to do about my middle name. I have decided to change my last name to his which I have no problem about. It just makes sense to me to have that connection. When I see a couple that have two different last names I assume that they are not married. Also when we have kids I want to have the same name as theirs. We are going to be a family unit Laughing
