Hey! I am getting my PhD in physiology  and I have been thinking the same thing. My plan is to legally change my name but for publication purposes I am going to hyphenate since I already have pubs in my maiden name, I want them to be connected to the pubs I will have after I get married.

I intend to be Dr. “Maiden Name” but Mrs. “Married Name” and legally change to Married name. I would love to just go by Dr. “First Name”, but it’s a bit of a mouthful. If you have a short name you can definitely get away with that.

I published papers as a grad student and one coming out as a postdoc, but I’m not staying in academia so I don’t really care about keeping my last name. and my FH says I don’t have to, but I can SO tell he wants to take his name. So, I’m changing mine to middle name=my current last name, last name=his last name. My former boss uses her husband’s name as a legal name (her bank account etc) and her maiden name as her professonal name.
