Name change, What would you do?
So I finally received my wedding license so I can finally begin the process of changing my name, but I'm kind of torn on what to do with my maiden name. I know I want to take his last name, and while my last name is extremely common its still my name, the one I've identified with my whole life. I originally was going to drop it and use my maiden name as my pen name for my artwork. As an artist I felt this was appropriate because art and my name have been with me since I was born. Or I can add my maiden name as my second middle name so I don't loose it but simply use my first, real middle and new last name. Are there any problems with either option that I can't foresee? What would you do?
