We are also hyphenating, and will do so for our children as well.  It is important for us to have the same names together as a family.  But I think it is a really personal decision so you two should talk about what you are comfortable with!

I think it really depends on the names.  For example, if we were to hyphenate, our kids names would be 20 LETTER LONG!  Two 10 letter italian last names here.  It’d just be cruel.  But if it works then you should at least talk to him about it.  I also have a couple friends who have their moms maiden name as their middle name.  Just if you wanted another way to tie in your last name and heritage without the hyphen option.
