For those who are married, which name was shorter, your maiden name or your married name? Or did you keep your maiden name?

My married name is my maiden name... Per Icelandic tradition, spouses maintain their father's name with -son or -dóttir attached to the end and do not change it upon entering a marriage.

I currently have my ex-husband's last name (we just finalized our divorce in June) so when SO and I get married, I'll be taking his last name. His last name is 4 letters opposed to 5

My maiden name was 7 letters, and my married name is 7 letters, so they're the same.

My maiden name was shorter at 6 letters and people had absolutely no trouble saying it.....my married name is 8 letters and I have yet to come across someone who can pronounce it correctly (unless they are Croatian since its a Croatian last name).

When SO and I get married it will be the same length, 8 letters. Our last names are different by only three letters any ways.

DP's surname is 5 letters and quite fitting but also quite boring. So I will Double barrel my surname which is very unusual, and 8 letters long, with his. I hope he changes his name so we both have the same double barreled name as our LO.
