.... why so popular of late ?

Call me old-fashioned, but I find them pretentious .... I understand that Mrs Brown-Jones might just want to preserve her Maiden name if she has no male siblings .... but does it really matter ?

Comes across as bollox in my book - F/Book is bloody riddled with them - and almost always women ....

Yep, I feel exactly the same. The moment I see or hear a double, or even triple, barrel name my hackles are up. Pretentious, self absorbed bulls!$%, much like personalised number plates.

I was going to have a double-barrelled name but then I thought 'King Key Browning-RemingtonBeretta' sounded just a little poncey.

My late mum had a triple barrel name... she was adopted as a child and retained her real fathers, adoptive father's and her husbands surnames... possibly because the adoption process robbed her of a sense of family, so she retained the names as a tenuous link to all of the families in her life...? Who knows...?

There is also those people that are the children of parents who gave themselves DB surnames. Not their fault.

I worked with a couple of Vons when I worked for KHD Deutz

One in particular was a double barrelled Von

He was a really nice guy who had been tattood at a very young age by his uncle who was in the SS

I never quite understood why he didn't have the Swastika on his right fore arm covered over or why he always wore his shirts with the sleeves rolled up

Maybe he was a Nazi too? 44

My pet hate is women changing their surname when getting married, it's the 21st Century ffs.
I've stuck with my 'maiden' name, because it's my name....

each to their own but why does the fact that it is the 21st century mean it is wrong to take your partners name?

But it's only your name because your mum changed hers to your dad's.

I suppose the name was at one time a mark of "ownership".

There are lots of people of African descent with European family names because at some point in the slave trade days their people were the property of those European familys.

If people getting married now want to distance themselves from that then that's their choice. Still kind of makes me think that they don't see the married status as permanent though.:speechless:

Ok that's your choice , but how do you decide what name any offspring would take. Please don't take this as a criticism, it's a genuine query.
I know a married woman who still uses her previous married name rather than either her new married name or original maiden name. That I do find odd.
