You can do whatever you want. There is no law. My mom kept her own name because she was known in her work field as “Jane Doe” If she changed her name or added my Step-father’s name “Jane Smith or Jane Doe Smith” people wouldn’t remember she is the same person who gave a lecture 3 years ago…

I am changing my name (dropping my last name entirely) because I don’t like it and I have to hear it being pronounced wrong all the time!

Yes, you can have them all! That’s what I did too. Occasionally people will only use the last part of my two-part last name since it’s not hyphenated, but it’s usually not a problem and I love having both.

You can change your name to whatever you want.  Whether you want your middle name or maiden name to be you “middle name.”  Either/or.
