To Change or Not to Change Your Surname after Marriage?

Big topic of conversation in the office this morning. 

Are you changing your surname once you get married? 

Those of you who know us well know that Bláithín has a double barrel. She became ‘O’ Reilly Murphy’ when she said ‘I do’ on 07.07.07. For her, this was an easy choice; her mother is double barreled { Fitzgerald O’ Reilly} and it seemed totally odd not having O’ Reilly as part of her name after 25 years.

But we want to know what you think. 

Do you feel a sense of identity crisis at having to take on a new or different name or are you excited at the prospect of a new persona and name as a new wife or husband? 

To help you decide and to give you some of the facts Peter Edwards Photography from Perth, Australia have shared this infographic with us they recently created.
