MiaSuperstar :  Oh that’s interesting! I legally changed my last name on my marriage certificate, which means that I had to change my social.. and then my passports.. and then my driver’s license.. It has been a process oh my goodness.

I thought I’d have qualms about having a different last name than my daughter, but it turns out I don’t. I’m not changing my name.

Honestly that is something you have to decide. I also don’t have a middle name name just a first name and a last name when I got engaged I knew that I was going to drop my maiden name and take his for me it’s really important for us to be a family and I knew that when we had children that it was important for everyone to have the same last name.

peekaboobs :  is there any way your Fiance would take yours. That is what mine is doing. We are going to become Mr and Mrs mylastname because I refuse to give mine up (for many reasons) but we both wanted our future children to have the same name as both of us. Fiance has no emotional connection to his last name so is taking mine and I am beyond thrilled.

I go by my husband’s last name socially and professionally. Legally I am still my maiden name. It works for me.

peekaboobs :  my sister has just got married and is sad to have given up her last name so she is going to get her maiden name tattooed. Actually we are getting matching sister tattoos apart from I’m keeping my name. Maybe his tattoo can be a tribute to his former name when he takes yours ha ha
