I'd do the double barrel name as I'd like to hold onto my family history. I once thought it would be different if my partners took my surname instead

I think of the hassle of having to change over all your documents to their name being a pain

I will definitely change mine!
I've always said that I will have my husband's surname before my children do!
Plus you're marrying into his family and therefore you should share the family name!

Just my opinion obviously

Male, and if I married a woman with an excellent name, I may well take hers (at least that's how I feel at the moment).

Pretty massive hassle to change it on documents though.

Definitely not changing my name ever. If my future husband wants us to have the same name, he can change his to mine. Why should only one sex be expected to change their name on marriage?

I do think the tradition is very outdated. I'll probably change it personally if it meant a lot to him, but definitely keeping my own name professionally.

I'll either hyphenate my name, or keep my name as it is. But if he really wants for me to change it, then i wouldn't mind doing so

No because I have achieved lots in my name, I'm not about to give that away to another family name it's mine.

I wouldn't mind, although I would prefer the shorter one

But that means writing a long name (the hyphenation)

I'd like to.
I like the idea of being referred to as "Mr and Mrs [surname]" , or my family being called "the [surname] family".

I will if his last name sounds cooler and suits my first name. My last name is the bomb so I doubt I'll change it

I don't want to get rid of my surname so, if he has a nice surname or if he wants me to have his name, I'll double-barrel. If not, I'm keeping my surname.

No I won't be changing my name, I have a name that includes both of my divorced parents' names and I would like to keep it that way.
