But why is it necessary to change your name in the diplomas and certificates as well?
And about being established - one of the piano teacher's in my former college had changed her last name to her husband's, but would use her maiden name in programs when she played in recitals. I think that's a great solution if one is relatively well-known in certain circles. Otherwise, come on, who is so well established in the aforementioned posts that the whole world would get confused if she changed her last name?

I think women decide to keep their maiden names just to maintain their individuality.And to make sure there is a distance between them as an individual or professional and them as a wife or mother.To each his/her own as they say.

I have to say that it's also quite an interesting experience, it's weird to be of Armenian origin and have an Irish last name, imagine if my first name was Tsovinar or Zamroukht.
I have to agree with Maral and anoushik. It's really an individual choice, I don't see what the big deal is, one should do what they find most convenient or practical to themselves, rather than adhering to some senseless principle. I am not a fan of two last names, it gets too complicated and too long, and it's true, down the road things will get even more confusing for the younger generations. In terms of identity, it's really not, your last name is your father's, from one man to another, so you just chose which man's name you'd like to carry, and if you love them both it could be a tough choice. Now your first name is your own, that's what people know you by, but that could be changed also. Nothing is really constant, so who cares, just do what's reasonable and what you desire most.
