    There are soldier surnames still left in Sweden, like Svärd (Sword), Hård (Hard), Modig (Brave).

    Russia, Ukraine, Belarus use patronymic name in all official documents. Patronymic names are useful in searching for relatives through archives, because you always know who was the father of a particular person. For example, you find a person knowing only given name and surname . But you don't know about his or her parents. There are several options if their father has several brothers and cousins. Having a patronymic name you know the father of siblings and their mother - wife of their father. If a girl gives a birth to a child out wedlock not knowing who's the father of the child she gives her child patronymic name of her father - child's grandfather.

Otherwise we'd risk degenerating into a clown society with rampant liberalism where everyone is named something like "Moonblood", case in point:

    I can't believe Stallone named his son, Moonblood.

    I've also seen some pretty funny Swedish last names, like "Snygg", which is the common word in Swedish, for handsome/good-looking.
    My uncle kinda did it, his wife didnt adopt his name and his sons got my aunt lastname instead, he has a very common and sometimes disliked surname. da Silva.

    Moonblood o.O why?
    Adieu

    What's there to dislike about da Silva?

    I don't know, celebrities going crazy I guess? Although to be fair, Sage Stallone was born before Sylvester became a huge celebrity, apparently it was shortly before the success of Rocky. lol, apparently it means menstrual blood:

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moonblood

    Imagine that, Stallone named his son after menstrual blood. And what kind of a first name is "Moon" anyway? And Bloodgood must be some native American last name, they tend to have some pretty funny names too, it was even parodied in Hot Shots 2.

Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    I vote for keeping the name which sounds best.
    I had decided it very early, that if I ever marry a person with a Russian or Polish or any other Slavic sounding surname, I will never take it. My cousin's husband took her surname, as hers is less common and his was Russian form his Russian father who had left him and his mom when he was very young. My colleague's husband also took her name as hers is uncommon while his was very common.
    I know my father wanted to take my mom's name as well, but she insisted on taking his name.
    I will take my husband's name and I must admit that it's very cool and very uncommon.

    The only thing though, I believe both should have the same surname.

    It is quite common for some people to be uncomfortable with wives keeping their maiden name, I don't know why. But it has caused politicians to lose elections. I think this is why Hillary Rodham started going by Hillary Clinton, because Bill Clinton was losing elections before. Former Canadian PM, Joe Clark, only served one term, not getting reelected because his wife didn't take her husband's surname. He spend the whole election campaign defending his wife, apparently. And Justin Trudeau's wife took on his surname as well in order to improve electoral chances (Joe Clark lost to his father, actually)... but since it's actually not custom in French-Canadian culture for a wife to take on her husband's surname, that pissed a lot of people off too, folks accusing the couple of not being loyal to their ethnicity.

    While where I live both the woman's as the man's name are written on doorbells and mailboxes. I never knew of women taking over names until late. Nothing against it though, but it's interesting how Americans associate the woman retaining her maiden name with SJW or hippies.

    In the Netherlands the woman does adopt the husband's name, but only informally and even there she also retains her maiden name on paper. What does change on documents is 'Mrs. X wife of Y' and vice versa it reads 'Mr. Y husband of X'. And informally the woman often gets called Mrs. Y. In Belgium not even that is done.

    Women taking their husband's last name is mainly a western thing historically. I don't think that has ever been the custom in Asia. I think it's a personal and cultural issue to be decided by the people involved. The topic using the phrase "allowed" is obviously loaded with other issues but women can do what they want. To me, women changing their last name isn't that important. It's the surnames of children that are the real issue.

    It depends on culture, really. But yeah, it’s funny about it being associated with SJWs or hippies. The opposite is the case for French-Canadians, though, it was more conservative folks who got mad at Trudeau’s wife for taking on his surname, and the anger is sometimes associated with knuckle-dragging conservatism. On Facebook, you will see conservative French-Canadians and liberal English-Canadians in agreement, using her maiden name. Weird dynamic. I tend to lean on the conservative side when it comes to culture, but I don’t care either way. Her life, not mine.
