    I would keep my maiden name only in case my husband would have a surname I absolutely don't like, which is not the case. Otherwise I believe that all members of the same family, like mom, dad and the kids should have the same surname, as well as citizenship. My father btw, wanted to take my moms surname when they got married.
    One thing I wouldn't go for is to have a double surname, which I believe is a fancy thing some people want to have.
    I've also noticed that grown ups who change their surnames have some personal issues... like they believe that by changing their surname their whole lives will change, especially when they change their common surnames to some more rare ones. I honestly find it simply ridiculous.

    In my country women retain their maiden name to the point I took it as evident for everywhere in the world most of my life. During one point in my life I even wondered what 'meisjesnaam' meant because the custom of the wife changing her surname wasn't something I knew about until later in my life. Apparently women here retain their maiden names since the French Revolutionary era, completely differently from leftist families in Anglo-Saxon countries.
    Inofficially we often say or write 'the family [husband's surname]' though not unseen is 'the family [husband's-]/[wife's surname]'. At our doorbells or mailboxes both the husband's as the wife's surname usually are written, though.

    To hyphenate one's children's names is a bit too exaggerated in my opinion. As if the relationship/marriage has less meaning almost. Of course in the exceptional case of the husband coming from a dysfunctional family, wanting to hide his foreign descent or the name sounding ridiculous, the option for the children taking the wife's name should be available as that of hisself taking over her name.

    my step mom is jewish and her entire family was basically wiped out during the holocaust so she kept her maiden name because of it and its never been an issue.

    She would go back to being the property of her father. If her father is dead, ownership is transferred to her male siblings. If there are no male siblings, then her son is indeed her keeper, atleast until she is remarried.

    It should be a choice. Different countries have different cultures. Some hyphenate their names (pretty common among Spanish culture or used to be though starting to happen less and less as my dad's name isn't hyphenated though my grandpa and his parents did so. Not sure about my grandma's side. Culture and transitions are being lost or changed overtime). Some surnames are Matriname; were they take on the woman's surname (it is a bit more rare though. When one of my aunts got married, her ex-husband look on her surname....though he came from a broken family and from another country so that may be why). I also know a few people that kept their maiden name and the children usually adopted the father's name or both.

    I like the hyphenated name as people should recognize and learn about both sides of the family instead overlooking one side. That and I like my surname as it is really cool and proud of it's history/ancestry. Also a bit less common so it stands out more. So I would like to keep it as part of the name if and when I get married.
