It was really hard to spell/say, rhymed with your first name, sounded horrible with your first name, or was otherwise a "bad fit?" I'm traditional in that I plan to take his name, but I might reconsider if it was really weird or something. For example, when my aunt married my uncle she didn't take his name because it rhymed and sounded really silly. No one blamed her. I once knew a guy who's last name was Van Der Fart...um, no :lol: I also grew up with a guy whose last name was Rutkiewitz...I think I'd go mad spelling that all the time What are your thoughts?
