Haven't seen any debates about name-changing in quite a while.
I'm planning a (U.S.) wedding in the spring.  I always assumed that I 
*wouldn't* change my last name, but now I'm giving at least a little
consideration.  One other idea that came up was to continue to use
my current name professionally and a married name socially.  While the
idea of two identities has some appeal, it seems like a paperwork
I also thought of using Firstname M. Lastname Newlastname because I
don't really want to be hyphenated.

Anyone care to comment on their experiences?
