    I’m going to be dropping my original middle name and replacing it with my maiden name. I already have two first names and my middle name is a pretty meaningless filler name I never use. So I will be “First-Name MaidenName MarriedName.”

    I’m pretty attached to my maiden name, but I didn’t want any more hyphens and I really like the idea of sharing a name with my future husband and our future family. This way my maiden name will still be a part of my legal name, but won’t ever be used.

    I love my middle name and my last name, but want to have the same last name as Fiance. I’m planning on keeping my middle name and adding my maiden name as a second middle name so I’ll be FirstName MiddleName MaidenName MarriedName (:

    I love my middle name and hate my maiden name, so I will be taking his last name, dropping my maiden name and keeping my middle name.

    My middle name is of massive sentimental importance – I was given the name of my father’s sister who died in early childhood.  If it weren’t very important to me to keep that part of my name, I would replace my middle name with my fiance’s last name.  I am committed to keeping my last name, but like the idea of adding his somewhere (plus the flow of First His Mine is much, much better than the other way around… on the off chance we have children, this is what they will get.  Pets, too, but I don’t think they’ll care much either way).  It seems like an awful lot of trouble to legally add a second middle name no one will ever see anyway, though, so I’m not changing anything.

    I never thought about this before, but I think I’ll just make my name:

    My first name – my middle name – his last name.

    My current last name would be a horrible middle name lol.

    I may just change my middle name to my maiden.  I love it and I don’t want to be without it, but want to accept my fiance’s last name.  So, I think that’ll be best the choice for me.  Otherwise, my name would be too long.

    I kept my middle name and added my maiden name as a second middle name.  I loved the idea of this before I changed it…now I’m realizing what a hassle it is.  For some odd reason, explaining to people when filling out documents that you have TWO middle names is a source of major confusion. lol

    I got rid of my middle name completely and instead added my maiden name and my mom’s last name as a second middle name since I’m much closer to her family than my dad’s so that last name actually has more significance to me than my own maiden name.  And now I share a last name with my hubby.

    I’ve learned, though, for the most part the world and computer systems are SOOOO confused by people with 2 middle names so it can be a hassle at times.

    I was going to change my middle name to maiden name, but I was told by social security that I had to have a court order to change anything other than my last name, so just took my husband’s last name and left it at that.

    I dropped my middle name, took my maiden as my middle, and took my husband’s last name (FirstName Maiden HisLast).

    I debated keeping my middle and making my maiden a second middle name (because I like my maiden), but all four names together seemed like overkill, so I dropped the middle.

    I don’t have a middle name so I am moving my maiden name over to the middle name slot and taking my FIs last name.

    I’m excited to no longer be name deficient. 🙂
