My fiance is not happy that I want to hyphenate. My main reason is for professional purposes only. But, other times I will be referred by his last name only.
What do you think would be the best option? Can I legally change it to just his last name, but hyphenate on my professional documents (business cards, work related documents).
You really need to discuss this with your finace and come to an agreement that suits you both.
Also you can drop your own middle name, use you maiden name as a middle name and just always use all 3 names when doing work related things, my friend did this.
Just be sure when you put in for a legal name change you use the whole thing exactly how you want it.
My fiancee is not jumping for joy about it either but he knows that is just protocal and that in 90% of life I will just use his name.
