    MY last name is a mouthful and difficult, so his is definitely an easier one to manage, but it is still unique so I like it.

    I had one of the most common maiden names in the world so for me I was thrilled to get rid of it and his is still a germanic last name so I like it, and it is still easy to spell and not crazy long or pronounce.

    I love my maiden name; my married name isn’t nearly as cool except for the fact that it’s my married name, and I like that.

    I voted I love it because I like it sooo much more than mine.  My last name has made me the butt of countless boner jokes my whole life and I can’t wait to get rid of it.

    I love it–it’s very common and simple to spell/pronounce, but not as common as Smith. When I take his name, I will no longer be Google-able, unlike now, when my unique name brings up me, me, me.

    I love it ๐Ÿ™‚ His last name is incredibly Irish, and it suits my first name. Plus I’ll make my initials JEM which is just freaking cool.

    I don’t like Fiance last name because it has a awkward -er at the end of it. Without the -er it is a nice last name, but Fiance doesn’t want to drop it. I don’t like my last name much either. I tried to convince Fiance to switch so we both change our names to my mom’s maiden name, but he wasn’t feeling that. Still not sure what I’m going to do.

    I hate it. It’s actually offensive to women. But I really want us and our kids to have the same name so we agreed to take what should have been his last name. His parents changed their name to avoid genocide in their country and never changed it back when they came to the US.

    I hate it. But I did take his last name. There was no question about it. It was an important tradition to me (just as important as the wedding) and I would never not want to have the same last name as my husband or children.

    Maybe it will grow on me?

    @MapleMoose: now I’m curious as to what it is!!

    I don’t mind FI’s last name, its nothing spectacular, but it’s his name. ๐Ÿ™‚  I’ll probably have to spell it out for people, but I have to do that now… even though my name seems super easy.  AND a bonus, I won’t be confused with a certain Bachelorette anymore!! yay. except then I will totally be googleable.
