I'm all in favour of own names.
In Holland a woman keeps her maiden name when she marries, as far as 'officialdom' is concerned. I am still Reinardina X, wife of Y and I like it that way. Passport, official documents etc are all in my 'own' name.
Children get the father's name, and in 'real life' you are known as Mrs Y, or often Mrs Y-X.
Here, in England, I have become Mrs. Y. A total new person, without a history.
