I'm excited to change my last name! What do you ladies think of your soon-to-be name? Will you take it?
My FH's last name is Smith, and I know it's basically the most common last name ever, but I'm ridiculously excited to be Mrs. Smith!

I am definitely taking his last name. Mostly because I know how much it means to him :3

I'm taking FH's name. He really disliked the idea of me hyphenating. So I will be Carlina Maria. (Kind of sounds like a middle name doesn't it?)

It does sound like a middle name a little bit, but I think it also sounds really awesome!

I used to dream of chaging my last name...it is a tough one and everyone butchers it! I hated it when I was younger, but have come to really appreciate it :) FH has a very nice and easy to pronounce last name, and although debated doing the hyphen thing, but I am just going to be a traditional girl and take his. My cousin's husband actually took her last name!

I'm going to be an Ole McDonald! I can't imagine the nicknames my family will come up with.

I tease FH about it all the time. I keep telling him, "My last name is Vaughan. How much cooler can you get? It's like Bond. James Bond. But Vaughan!" He says, well, my last name spelled backwards it Notrub! I look at him and say,"You think notrub is cooler than Vaughan?" I tell him we can be Von Burton! He says no go. All teasing aside, I am super excited to take his last name. =)

I'm ridiculously old-school in my views of love, marriage, and men and womens' roles... so I couldn't imagine not taking his name! I'm perfectly excited to leave my old one.

@FM Oregon Ducks Fan - thanks. I like that it still sounds Italian, even though he's Portuguese.

I'm indifferent to both my possible choices. I think his name might be slightly harder to pronounce (based on how many people don't understand when he says his last name), but it is very common, just like mine. I will be taking his, which...is weird!

I can't WAIT to change my name! I have been Sarah Connors for FAR too long. Can you imagine how many Terminator jokes I have gotten over the course of my life? I am so happy to be taking his far less common name :)

I can't wait to take his last name. I'll be Mrs. Davis :)

I am not old-school with a lot of things, but I do believe that I should take my husband's last name. That and Thomas is too damn common.

@Sarah C.: I could imagine. I get a lot of Rocky jokes for my first name. I wish I could change that. Even people who don't know me, if they hear me out with friends who say my name. They just have to make a reference to Rocky. I hate it.

I'm taking FH's last name..I feel like he is part of who I am and what better way to reflect that than taking his name? :-)

I cant wait to take FH's last name :) it has never even been a question of wether or not I would take it, not that I look down upon women that don't change theirs but just personally I would feel weird being married and not having his last name, plus I also can't wait not to be associated with my father and his family by a name I am stuck with
