What's in a name?

I was totally adamant that I keep my name after marriage. So attached am I to my complete name that I felt that even changing a part of it (by maybe even hyphenating) was like losing, at least partly, my identity.

Not that I have a problem with anyone changing their names. I just didn't see any rational point in doing so. Or maybe it was my feminist side bursting out. Or my association with my full name that I didn't want to lose (I'm very proud that my family name is a part of my full name). Or I just didn't want to have to do something like that just for the sake of doing it.

Who am I kidding. I'm just plain lazy.
