I don’t have the professional part of the problem. I’m a software developer .. no names are put in code so that’s all good and done. But like you, my name last name is Indian. Its actually my mom’s maiden name because she hadn’t changed  hers until much later. So it holds a tie to my family that I felt I was cutting off. It made me sad and I don’t like the sound of my new married name yet. I turned in the papers to change it last week. My husband’s last name (even though his is not German – more like Guyanese/Indian) is a German last name. Not sure how it came to be, but it is. In the end, my traditional side won, I should change my name to his last because we now are a family and having a consistent last name is something I see as important. I kept my maiden as my middle, since I didn’t have a middle name. Its hard but do what’s best for you. 🙂
