I’m going to drop my maiden name and keep my last name. My maiden name is a family name, so it means so much to me.

Love my new last name! Kept my middle name. I wish my middle name was my first name. Ha hate my first name. Its super super boring.

I’m debating the same thing! I definitely don’t want to completely drop my maiden name, so I will make it a middle name. But what do I do with my current middle name – drop or keep?!

Why not hyphenate? I like my middle name and last name, so I’m hyphenating. I think it’s a good alternative if you want to keep your middle and last name.

I made my maiden name a second middle name.  Definitely not the norm where I’m from, but I couldn’t imagine giving up any part of the name that had been a part of me for so long.

Not dropping anything just adding on new last name so new legal name will become 4 names/30 letters in ALL!! Crazy, I know, but My first, middle, and maiden names are all of personal significance to me so I can’t part with any of them.
