Q: What percentage of women turn their maiden name into their middle name? My mother-in-law insists that that is the way its done and I don’t know anyone who has done that. Who is more right?
A: A bride who wishes to take her husband’s last name may retain her given middle name or, more commonly, use her own surname as a middle name. However, we don’t know of any exact percentage as to how many women use their maiden name as their middle name when marrying. Essentially, it’s the bride’s choice.
