If hyphenating my surname with his still didn't work then I'd probably keep my own. My mum always told me to avoid falling in love with someone with the surname Fisher for that reason. My first name is a rhymer.

I'm just so glad neither of us have the same name as her!
My mum recently changed her name back to her maiden name and I felt a bit sad but totally understood.

I love my DP and his family immensely, but I will always be me and a part of my very amazing family.

I wouldn't take it if it sounded funny with my name. But it sounds fine so yeah I'd change it lol. I have my mum's maiden name as my surname now, have done since I was 13 (so half my life.)

Nope. But then the idea of taking on someone else's name makes me break out in a cold sweat. I don't get the 'everyone has the same name' thing. My DS has DP's name, this baby will have mine. If we had another, I don't know, we'd flip a coin maybe. I don't care that DS doesn't have my name. He has DP's name which is lovely.

This will probably sound horrible but my Dad's side of the family is so mashed up and not a great history. It is also a surname that many can't spell and mispronounce so I'm happy to have a normal last name when DF and I get married lol.

Hubby and I changed our last name to one we made up. I didn't like the sound of his and frankly I didn't want to take on the name of his dad who isn't very nice to me or hubby.

I probably wouldn't.
If I took DP's surname both my first and last name would start with an S. I think it looks kind of stupid tbh, and think my name looks much nicer with the surname I already have. I'll probably keep my own surname anyway I think... I have no real reason to want to take on a new identity.

My sister is happily married and has never taken her hubby name and has no intention. I couldn't imagine her by any other name.
In my case, hubby and I both changed our names.
