Maiden Name - Middle Name?

Hi there - I'm recently married (yahoo!) and I saw earlier on the boards this was asked but with no updates or answers on how it all worked out.

I'm hoping to take my maiden name on as a second middle name without changing the name on my birth certificate. I would take on my husband's last name - and become Mrs. Husband's Name - but still keep that part of my life in my name as a middle name (appearing on as many other things that contain my other middle name!)

Has anyone been able to accomplish this?

    Not allowed in Ontario :(  The only way to do this is to change your birth certificate unfortunately.

    Very disappointing, I know!

  • That's disappointing - has anyone found a similar solution or can share what they chose to do?
  • I'm planning to hyphenate, but then continue to just use my maiden name professionally.

  • My understanding, is that you can add your husband's last name to your own, either with a hyphen or with a space, so you can still keep your maiden name.  Does that make sense?
