I didn't keep my maiden name when I got married. I was brought up that when you marry someone, you take their name. It was never an option to keep my name, and I honestly would not want to. I'm proud to have my husband's last name.


Nope. My name was unique and super-easy to Google, so I escaped that notoriety by taking my husband's more generic last name. :)


I don't have a middle name so I just moved my maiden name over to my middle name and took on husband's last name.


I am getting married in July, I gave my daughter his last name because I will have it soon too. We will all have the same last name after July!
