i didn’t hyphenate but i have 2 last names; i’m first middle (which is my mom’s maiden) maiden hislast. when i say my last name or on forms, it’s maiden hislast. it’s a little long, but i really love it anyway 🙂 it’s really flexible– if someone just refers to me as mrs. hislast, they’re still right, and my maiden name is still front and center, so there’s continuity professionally

I recently got married and am struggling now with all the paperwork I am dealing with that comes with a name change. I am also hyphenating to myname-hisname. Thankfully, it’s only 3 syllables. Professionally, I felt it was necessary to keep my maiden name, but I am also a traditionalist and felt taking his name was necessary also, hence the hyphen. It’s all a personal choice, but in retrospect, now that I’m dealing with the name change paper work, it’s a REAL PITA! Good luck bees!
