I kept my name and my husband kept his.  My children have his name
(Tinkelman) and to the NYC Board of Education alone am I Mrs. Tinkelman.
When the children were born, before the birth certificates were filled out, 
they and their records were Baby Girl Kapell and Baby Boy Kapell.  

We tell them that they really had both names, but for conveniance, they
probably should use the most recent.
