    I'm taking his last name, although I might make my maiden name my middle name. I like the idea of when we have kids the whole family having the same last name. (I also don't find it a problem, or weird for people to keep their own last name.)

      I don't know how I missed this thread before. I had a panic attack after we got engaged over changing my name. I realized how attached I am. I mean it's me it's who I am and I feel like changing it is taking away part of my identity!

      We have a piece of mail for our home insurance that for some reason comes with his name and then mine hyphenated and I decided I could handle that a little more.

        The first time I got married I changed my name. Then about 5 years ago I went back to my maiden name. I am not changing it again. I am tired of changing passport, drivers license etc! lol


        lol! This will be my first marriage and still no name change. He has no problem with it, but I am sure one of his sister's will.

          I am keeping my last name but in Quebec we do not have a choice:)
          But if i did have a choice i think that i would still keep my own name :)

            I'm sooo glad to know that hyphenating seems to be the trend! I am hyphenating also.

                I think I'm going to take his name. My mom doesn't want me to as she didn't and in mainland China (where I'm from), it's not common to. However, like Leez309, I like the idea of the whole family having the same last name.

                I wanted to hyphenate but to be honest, I'm too lazy for that! It would be so long. I think I will instead make my maiden name my middle name. That I'll still have it there, but I can condense into just one initial. I'm not as familiar with western traditions but that's the way it was originally done, right?

                  I plan to take my FI's name. I have three brothers so my family name should live on (none of them have kids yet though). I too like the idea of an entire family sharing the same last name. But I don't like that it's assumed a woman will just change her last name once she marries! Not fair.

                    I do not want to but FI insists I do. I will probably hyphenate.

                      Do not feel bad because I am going to have to deal SI that is not going to like the fact that I am not changing my name. She will have plenty to say to him, but she will not say anything to me.
