I had a few questions las week concerning the etiquette in name changing.
I honestly had no idea what the propper etiquette was so I did a little digging.
Here is what I found:
Traditionally women were supposed to change their maiden name to their husbands' surname upon marriage. This was a sign of commitment and respect. Now days you have an option.
Not taking your husbands last name doesn't show a sign of disrespect or commitment it could very well be for business reasons, say if you already have an established medical practice, then it might be difficult to change your name professionally and personally. So I think you really have a handful of options. Here is a few:
Amy Lee Smith
Joe Ryan Thomas
Amy Lee Thomas
Amy Lee Smith-Thomas
Amy Smith Thomas
When I get married in October I will be taking my Fiance's last name.
Ashley Brooke Daniel = Ashley Brooke Quintana
How fun does that sound?!
