Same Name?

So, I was on Facebook, looking at people’s statuses and such, and I discovered an old Facebook Friend.

I remember this facebook friend mainly because we have the same last name and are NOT related (well, as far as we could trace)

so we got the facebook chatting (which by the way, is slowly getting better, people aren’t randomly disappearing as much) and then I was hit with a very interesting “hypothetical situation”

If we were to get married: what would her new last name be? would she change it? Hyphenate it? superscript it?

What would be the appropriate thing to do if your last name was “Smith” and you met/fell in love with/planned to marry someone with the last name of Smith?

does she become “Smith-Smith” ?

what about ” Smith^2 ” ?

would it be considered laziness if she stayed Smith?

how do you tell this story to friends with a straight face ?

what would your Parents think when you first bring them home ???

how much fun would you have explaining this to anyone who asks for your maiden name for official business ?

What are your thoughts? concerns?
