Should I change my surname?

It all depends on what you feel comfortable with, since your name defines
in part, your very identity.  If you have published only 1 paper, keeping
your maiden name may not be a big issue.  Presumably you will be
publishing many more papers, and can always refer to your previous paper
in your CV (for example).  I found the "hyphenated" option the best for
me, one which is becoming more and more common.  In the end, don't worry
about what other people say (or think), it is how you feel (setting aside
all the practicalities and impracticalities) that counts!
