I own a design firm, and my last name is well known throughout the community. I am afraid if I change my last name, people won’t recognize me, and I could lose potential business.
I also don’t want to upset my fiancé by NOT changing my last name to his. He is really looking forward to us sharing a name.
So—what would you do? Would you:
a) Still change it to his last name
b) Do a hyphenated name (my last name is 2 syllables and his is 3 syllables so it can be pretty long)
c) keep my old maiden name, regardless
