I have kept my maiden name not because i dislike dh's but because I love my own. My dh couldn't care less, for us it is a totally antiquated concept, but each to their own
My mother has kept her maiden name as well and I liked how as a child I felt tied to both sides of the family rather than just one if that makes sense.

I haven't and won't change my name anyway. It doesn't sound funny, but I'm not changing it.

I took DH's surname, even though it means that my middle name and my surname are now the same (spelt differently - xxxx xxxxxes xxxxxis).
I had always meant to just drop my middle name, but it's now 10 years on and I still haven't.
Nobody IRL generally know unless I tell them, but people at the bank etc always have a giggle

I struggle with the same situation, my fiancé wants me to take his name I want to keep mine because I like my name (zieba) and I can't really have both names or I will be "chard-zieba" if I take just his name I'd be technically named a type of steak and how it's cooked :s....tricky situation

Once you have kids most people refer to you as mrs childs surname so it really doesn't matter IMO if you do or do not take it. even if I remarry I'll still get the other surname I'm pretty sure

After my ex and I separated I went back to my maiden name. I was in QLD and just took my birth certificate into the transport dept, explained the situation and got a new license with my maiden name. I then used that license to change my name everywhere else. This was before we were divorced. I'm now remarried and took my husband's last name.
If it rhymed or made some unflattering name then I probably would have kept my maiden name. Hyphenating would not have been an option, our last names were very similar, only two letters difference.
