    I took my husbands last name I was really excited to take it as well, it symbolizes the beginning of our new life. we will probably use my maiden name in our sons name

    Before I got married to exDH I changed my whole name (first, middle and last). I asked my parents opinion before I did so and they said they'd support me no matter what. My birth name was a symbol of who I was not who I am or going to be. I just felt like a needed a new fresh start and identify.

    I couldn't be happier. Glad I changed it. I have the same last name as my DS and exDH.

    Yes, I am still me, just because I wanted my little family to all share a lastname - my name does not define who I am, I am still the same person I was when I was known legally by my maiden name.

    Yes. It was important to me to have the same surname as my husband and children.

    I'm not married yet....after 10 years! :-) however even though my name with his last name sounds awful and really hillbilly I would still take it as its very important to me to have the same name as my children.

    Yeah, we did this. Poo-poo to hyphenater haters.

    OP It's not anti-feminist to make whatever choice you choose to. It's simply thanks to feminism that we have the choice.

    I couldn't wait to take DH's surname. There was nothing wrong with my maiden name and his surname is not great but it was just an exciting part of getting married for me.
