Both my fiancee and myself are medical students and are getting married in 2 months. Both my grandfather and father were doctors and I, as the next generation of doctors in the family hoped to retain my last name in my profession. However, my future husband wants me to change my name. I also don't like the fact that our kids will have his last name and I won't be able to share in the name of our family. Is there a way for me to retain my name professionally as a doctor, but also have my husbands name? Any suggestions? What do most females med students getting married do?
