Anyone NOT Taking FI Name?

I've considered hyphenating my last name, so it would be my maiden name-his last name. I like the idea of that, and I think I could live with it. Everyone would know me by his last name, but all my documents would still have my maiden name on them.
Anybody else not taking FI's last name, hyphenating your last name, or even better, FI taking your name?

I am not taking my Fiances name. He is from Quebec and they no longer do name changes when they are married. His mom doesn't share the same last name so i feel it would be weird for me to. I don't want to step on anyones feet in his family so i will do it their way. So as you see it isn't only "feminists" who do this anymore. I believe it is your choice and if your fiance doesn't mind, just keep you name. You can always change it later if you have a change of heart.

I finally did somewhat talk him into it by saying it would be a pain to have to change my bar licenses and all of that and all of my letterhead etc, etc, etc. So he said "ok you can hyphenate" So at least I will have the option of what name I want to use

Can't really hyphenate our last names. It would just be too long. Lol.
Jenise Olavarria-Villanueva is just too much of a mouth full for anyone.
