There was a couple in the SCA who solved it this way:
They hyphenated their names in such a way that she took his name as the pre-hyphen and her own as post-hyphen, and he did it the other way around.
It got a little confusing since one of them already had a hyphenated name (not sure why).
So one of them became (First Name) Christiansen-Ten-Hove, and the other became (First Name) Ten-Hove-Christiansen (these were mundane names, not their SCA persona names).
It must have been confusing as hell for times when both their names were on an envelope or they were invited to a party or somesuch. I have no idea what they decided to name their kids (if they had kids).
Wow! Its a cute idea, but I feel like it would kind of defeat the purpose of having the same last name I guess. IDK I’m a dork like this sometimes lol.
I have heard a couple of times stories about people who have had different names to their children, and had trouble in international airports because they are suspected of some form of child abduction. In such a situation it would seem a very sensible idea.
Another valid reason to have the same last name. Bloody stupid reason though, like divorce is extremely common and changing one’s last name is less and less common nowadays.
I’m 14. How can I be married?
Yeah that’s why I was confused lol. XD
Think I misinterpreted your post.
