@krrmee5:  Have you considered making a new name? I love that idea because I feel like I am not joining FI’s family any more then he is joining mine, and above all us we are making a new family. Im actually quite passionate about this but Fiance wont have a bar of it

If you want to keep your last name, keep it.  If he’s okay with you not having the same last name as him, that’s fine.  Don’t worry about future children, nobody will think twice when they find you you have a different last name than your kids.

I struggled with this decision for a while because I love the tradition of taking your husband’s last name but the combination of my first name and his last name sounded like a cartoon character. I eventually decided to hyphenate. I made it clear I wanted out future kids to also have the hyphenated name so hubby chose to change his last name as well 🙂 side note: he actually wanted to change his last name to mine but I felt awkward about that

don’t worry about the name thing, I’ve always had a different last name then my mom and it’s never hurt me. It’s actually been benificial in ways, because I can list her as a reference, and no one knows she’s my mom haha
