    True fact: the author of [SMBC](www.smbc-comics.com) Zach Weiner and his wife did this. Now he’s Zach Weinersmith

    Edit: apparently I don’t know how to format links?

    I think it should be whichever has the worst last name has to take the other one’s name. So Michael Wiener marrying Jane Doe would result in Michael Doe

    The last three letters of my surname are the same as the first three letters of my fiancee’s surname. I want to compound them (–hen—-). She wants us to use Henhen. The battle is ongoing.

    This is exactly what my wife and I did. I’m a Phan and she is an Ivanovich, so the name became awesome in the end haha.I really love that we decided to do this.

    But then the debate will be “whose name should be most prevalent in the next generation?” and everyone will lose their minds. I’m more in favor of just naming kids after objects and ideas. Like, “Hi, I’m Tom Capitalism” or “My parents named me Eugene Eugenics, but I wasn’t a fan so I made my last name ‘Syringe’ instead”

    One of my professors in college did this with his wife. They ended up with “Holden,” which seems too damn normal.

    I have friends who each kept their last name, but gave their daughter a portmanteau for a last name (not hyphenated). It seems like a great idea to me.

    They should name all of their kids a combination of their first names, too.

    So when I – Bunty – and my girlfriend – Carson – get married……. we could never, ever go out in public again.

    And we would also have to avoid naming our kids Andrew, Annabelle, Adrian or Aria.

    Holy crap I actually know people who did this! I worked with the bride-to-be and asked if she was planning on taking her husband’s last name. She laughed and said no. Apparently she didn’t want to be the only black woman with the last name of “Whitebone”. I don’t want to post her full name here, but they used her rather common last name, dropped the first letter, and used the W from “Whitebone”.
