    Not getting married anytime soon, but I doubt I'll change my surname. From where I'm from, women do not take their husbands name, and the kids get two: first the dad's first last name, and second their mom's first last name. For this reason, my last name is already pretty long so hyphenating it with my husbands name would be too much of a hassle. It will probably be an issue where I live now (the US), because everyone expects women to take their husband's name all the time, but I do not mind atm. If anything I'd drop my second last name and hyphenate my husband's with my first last name. I also have this thing where my last name is pretty indicative of my ethnicity, and I would feel weird just erasing that. As for kids, I'm thinking either just their dad's or their dad's and my first last name. But we'll see, that's a long way down the road.

    I think it's completely fine if women want to take their husband's surname, but it would be better if it didn't have to be the man's every time. Like maybe it could depend on what last name they like best, or something. Also, hate when people shame other women for not changing it.
    21. Just another name nerd not having kids any time soon.

    I'm going to change mine.
    I've never had good relations with my father's family, so I don't feel super connected to it. That and my fiancé's last name is a bit easier. Hyphenated names have become kind of popular lately, but since we both have long last names, that's out of question. I guess I would opt against changing my name if the possible new one was ugly or joke provoking.

    Personally, changing my last name has never been in my plans. I got lucky with a pretty last name. I think no matter the name, unless something terribly embarrassing, I’d decide to keep my own name.

    I married a year ago, and I changed my last name to my now husband’s and kept my maiden name as a middle name. I am very happy with this.

    I plan on taking my future husband's last name. But if it's something really horrible like Dick, then I'll ask him to change his last name to mine, but I won't force him. I'll want to keep my last name though, and ask if our kids can have my last name. I'm not adopting a surname like dick or anything like that. lol
