    One more thought

    When I consider not going by my German surname which has a history going back to Charlemagne, but rather taking on my spouse's name which is a rather common everyday surname identifying some distant ancestor's trade, I have to stick with my own.

    And if was her name that had a history, and yours that was common, would you switch?

    If hers was von Heilbronn and mine was Bäcker, yes...I think...maybe

    Since I'm a chauvinist, this is quite difficult for me

    Well, with my couple, I don't know, I would like to keep my own surname and so should she. With my sons I would give them both surnames because although I'm the father and all that stuff, she's the mother and she's the one that will be "holding" it for 9 months and the one who will make the effort to bring him to life. I think it would be fair for both parents, because the son is from both.

    I view it a male duty to carry on the family name so I wouldn 't want no man taking my name in marriage. There's something strange to me about a man bearing a woman's name, my gut feeling is telling me "don't let him do it!"
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    I know a bloke across the road whose father (along with himself) took his wife's name because he was German.

    Before anyone harps on about how ridiculous that is, the baby boomers and those born during wartime were growing up with their parents still recovering from WWIIs aftermath (me included). Germans weren't popular in this country, nor were the Japs. Thankfully, that's changed now, but I very much understood the reason for it.

    On a reverse note, I regret not keeping my maiden name when I got married. I don't think it's necessary for people of either sex to change their names otherwise, unless they really want to. I changed mine to keep the same name as my kids, but I would've hyphenated their names if I had my time over.

    Taking the name of the wife, for both the children as the husband conflicts with the family-line or tree. How will you trace back your family if everybody can just chose the name they desire. Besides, it's not traditional.

    My parents aren't married so I have two last names but if I get married I'd want to keep the Swedish last name and pass it on to any children I have, I don't see any reason to deviate from that tradition. If the woman is annoyed by the idea of taking her man's last name in marriage then we are probably not right for each other anyhow.

    If the mans' name was common and boring like Smith. If the womans name was a rare Germanic name.
    Maybe the surname should be gender different as in Iceland. I think this is the true Germanic way. E.G marriage of Erik and Gunnhildr. The sons are Eriksons, the daughters Gunnhildrsdottir. Am I correct?
    NB daughter in Lancashire is still pronounced Dottur.
