    I agree, having three last names makes it overly complicated.  Are you dead set against just taking FI’s name?

    My friend for as long as I have known her has been (I’ll use your examples)

     Mary Ann Jane Smith –  Firstname Middlename Middlename Surname.

    only a couple of months ago did she find out that she acyuaaly has 2 Surnames according to her birth certificate so

    Mary Ann Jane Smith Brown –  Firstname Middlename Middlename Surname Surname

    no hyphens or anything.

    although this doesnt particularly relate to your situation, just thought it might be nice for you to know that you wouldnt be alone in having multiple Surnames. and I like the idea of being able to choose which Surname to use in different situations, and it is something that I am considering doing too.

    Hope you can work something out that you will be happy with!
