I took Dh last name, but changed my middle name to my maiden name.   8)
No hyphen though, never enough room to write them both.  :lol:

that's a good idea karky!  dh's surname and my maiden surname don't sound nice together.  luckily it starts with the same letter so at least my initials are the same!

Funny that my DHs name is very similar to may maiden name, just 2 different letters. Same initial. My DD has both names
(the tradition here is 4 names: 2 given, then mother's, then father's).
Funny that me and both DH and my ex-H have all the same initial M :)

Well, she can keep her name the same as always, but her kids cannot.
Well, kids may be given up to 2 surnames from mother and two from father.
So they end up with 6 names.
Personally I find that ridiculous.
There's a fad trend now coming from the upper classes: only 3 names. One given, one from mother, one from father.
I prefer 2 given names, just in case a person doesn't like the first they can always use the 2nd.
In the 4 name tradition, one of mother's and one of father's name must go.
Alas, it's usually mother's surname that is dropped.
I don't carry any grandmother's name (actually I do, but just because my mother's parents were cousins and exactly same surnames.)
In principle my DD's kids names will be: Given1 - Given2 - My DD's last- Her DH's last
My grandchildren will not have ice cream name in principle :(
Of course she can choose and give my surname instead of her own (my DH's)
Hmmmm this sounds more complicated than it is  :?
How does it work in Malta?

here whether or not the wife takes the husbands name, the kids take the fathers (not fair!!)  sometimes they keep both surnames.  sometimes the wife will take the husbands surname and keep her own too. (often if its a less common surname)
 one of our european parliament candidates was roberta metsola tedesco triccas.  her parents wanted to keep both surnames cos they are not common ones so she was roberta tedesco triccas and she married metsola.  but i've never come across anyone else who had 3 surnames!

Here in Greece women keep their own surnames when they marry by law (since the 1980s), which I think is really cool. Though I think they can apply to take their husband's if they want to. When they marry, they are supposed to register whether any children of the marriage will take the mother or father's surname, but I guess that 99 times out of a hundred they probably put the father's.
Most of my friends in Australia and the Uk took their husband's surname when they married. It seems very strange to me that they should choose to do so.

as i mentioned here the norm is to take the husbands name and all the children would have that surname so everyone in the family would have the same surname however i stil think of myself as having the name i was given at birth... inho children should take the mothers surname :)
