Both change your names to Lopez-Gonzales and pass that on to your kids.

Bazan-Villafuerte would be an awesome sounding last name, and they flow really well together! And it would actually be really sweet if you both changed your last names together, instead of the one sidedness of the traditional route.

If I were you, I’d take Villafuerte. Also, I’d have my children  only take Villafuerte. Not sure of the cultural rules. Have you asked your elders what they think?

My fiance has a hyphenated last name (MomsLast-DadsLast) and I am only taking his Dad’s last name.  They are not Hispanic, his mom was just heavily involved in the 70s women’s lib movement. 🙂

I strongly recommend against hyphenating your kids; as someone who is marrying a hyphenated adult, figuring out which name of his to take prompted difficult and awkward conversations with his family.
