Remember Pia’s dialogue in ‘3 Idiots‘ when she got to know Rancho’s real name? When she said, “Me Shaadi ke baad apna surname change nahi karungi, (I won’t change my surname after getting married)", every lady who cringed over her to-be husband’s surname felt that! It’s a long-standing tradition of women adapting to their husbands’ last names after getting married following the patriarchal norms. They are expected to keep up with the men’s surname or align their existing one to it in modern times. However, a woman suggested that married couples should choose between cooler last names and Twitter thinks it’s not a bad idea.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, she wrote, “married couples should take whomever’s last name is cooler.” Netizens approved the marriage tip and even shared instances when both the wife and husband mingled their surnames to come up with a new one. “My wife and I combined our last names. Jankowsky + Lindstrom = Jankstrom,” commented a user while another one said, “How did I never know this!? Love it.”

Calling it the ‘survival of the fittest’, internet users rather turned it into a funny conversation where they talked about weird last names that they heard about. “My wife’s last name is Vowell. I told her we should change our last names to ‘Consonant’,” replied a user. Another one exclaimed, “I agree with this. If my wife had a cool last name like ‘Panther’ I would have defo taken it. It’s the fairest system.”

My wife’s last name is Vowell. I told her we should change our last names to “Consonant.”She asked “y?” And I said “sometimes”
We have different lasts names still.

You should attach a vote to every invite. then at the wedding right before they finish the ceremony you can do a big reveal on what name won.— Ry (@Hash_bros_inc) February 2, 2023
Part of the wedding ceremony should involve a coin toss that forever decides which last name the couple will have.“Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you for the first time ever … [flips a coin] …THE MILLERS!”
Fair and excellent entertainment value.

Another chunk of social media even came up with suggestions that went like this, “Part of the wedding ceremony should involve a coin toss that forever decides which last name the couple will have”. “I always thought the name should lean towards whomever happens to be an only child at the very least. It makes sense, that way the family name does not vanish permanently when you get married,” remarked the other.
