I changed my last name to my husband's name. I wasn't super attached to my own and I wanted us to have the same name/future kids to have the same name.
What's interesting is that my husband's name very obviously and clearly comes from a specific culture/country. It's quite a common name from this country. When combined with my first name, it's sounds like I'm completely from this group as well. My first name is quite universal but used often in the country of my husband's last name. This is fine by me, but it's a little weird that people assume I'm from that nationality upon hearing my name. Also, I was born in an Eastern European country and speak that language, but you would NEVER be able to tell from my name. I feel like my original/familial cultural identity is hidden by my name.Expecting boy #2 this summer

My fiance are planning on changing both of our names to a unified surname.Reason why is because neither of us like our current surnames and have any other family besides each other.But #1 reason for me is that he was married now divorced and she took his name.So for a bit there was a Mrs.xxx so i don't want a surname that has been mutually shared that way.
His two daughters on the other hand have their bio mom's madien names.So this surname will be for us and future children sadly I can't steal his daughter(i've only had the chance of meeting one daughter) and change her name to our new family surname...
