I like mine better because it is unique (and yes, people say it wrong too) and is very cultural. I am excited to be a Mrs. FI’s Last Name though!

I like my last name a TON better.  His is so so common and mine has a lot of family heritage behind it.  Plus all my nicknames from friends involve my last name and it fits so well, I love the meaning of it, etc etc.  I’m SO attached. 

So of course, I still haven’t decided exactly what to do 🙂

Mr. Dan has a TERRIBLE last name… and he get so offended when I say that I’d rather keep mine. Does anyone else have this issue?

I like both our last names and they are both "cultural" – one is Irish and the other is Swedish. His is shorter and much easier to pronouce, which is a good thing. Plus, it makes my initals "CDN" so I can say I’m tried and true Canadian. (haha.)

I have to say that I like the way his last name and my first name sound together.  It almost sounds like a Spanish actress….

I like mine, i’m norwegian and my whole name goes together. I want to take his though but boy is it expensive! New passport, new greencard, driver’s liscence….

I like mine waaay better. 

But I am still looking forward to changing it!

Mrs. Bee–do you go by your maiden name for your business stuff?

Can I say neither? 🙂 We both have last names that are difficult for people to pronounce and very easily misspelled. I use my middle name for business so I will continue to do so after we get married. I’m taking his name because like Mrs. Bee, I like the idea of our family all having the same last name but I’m really just trading apples for apples. Haha!

I like both. They are both unique. Mine is German and his is Romanian. I will be taking his because I too want our family to have the same name and there are plenty of males in my family to carry on the name. Besides, his name will put me at the front of the alphabet instead of towards the end!

I was thinking of doing the opposite, to save on passports etc. Use his but legally be still just me. Anyone else doing that?

Mine is too Mexican, plus about 70% of hispanics have my last name, his is totally Irish so I will stick with his plus makes my name sound exotic along with his last name.

I like mine better, I think my first and last name sound a little more melodic than my first name and his last name. Mine is way more common than his but I don’t really mind. Plus my last name starts with an "A" and I always like being first

I like my last name better, but I am changing.  My name is pretty common and easy to spell and his is not.
