(Closed) I can’t decide how to change my name!

I went with my first/my maiden name/his last.  I REALLY wanted to hold on to a piece of myself, so that was my comprimise (I almost didn’t change my last name and he was actually very supportive of that!). 

I love my maiden name and am proud of it!  Even if it does make my middle initial a “Z” I don’t care, I felt like I kept a piece of “old” self and became closer with my husband for taking his name at the same time 🙂

My dilemma is that HisLast and MyLast rhyme! It actually sounds really terrible. (We’re talking “Davidson Mason”.) So hyphenating is out of the question, but just keeping my name would probably just cause confusion (and hurt feelings in his conservative family).

Any suggestions? I might just totally fabricate a new Lastname, haha!

Also, if I decide to keep my last, how should I let people know?
