Can go both ways

Name changing is in the air, I guess. Kottke posted this article about new trends in taking your significant other's last name. Having both bride and groom take both last names and hyphenate them is kind of cool. I know a couple who did a variation of this--the groom took the bride's last name and kept his name as a middle name, and vice versa with the bride. Except the two names together sounded like a sexually transmitted disease, so they both ended up taking the groom's last name.

OMIGOD... how cute was that guy's reasoning:

"because I'm a big ole granola liberal and I wanted to tweak the tradition while showing my wife I love her."

I don't know who he is, but I LOVE him. :)
