I'm just curious here. Soon-to-be FI has a hyphenated name, and neither of us can figure out what to do with it. The easiest option would be to leave it as-is and just have me take it, but both of us have agreed that we're not a fan of the hyphen thing and definitely don't want to pass it on to our children. I also really don't want a lifetime of people immediately assuming my maiden name is the first half of my new, hyphenated last name. I'm not sure why the idea of that bothers me, but it does. Eh.
My favorite idea thus far: dropping one name from the hyphenated last name, and both of us just taking that one name.
What did you ladies do, if anything?
