Keeping your maiden name is only really valid if your name brand recognition means something in your business identity.

Keeping your maiden name as an empowering act is really a rejection of what marriage is supposed to be, a merging of two people into an US, not a YOU and I.

It's as if you want to keep a separate personality to protect yourself just in case things don't work out.

So to me it shows more the act of someone not secure enough to accept their role in a marriage,

Or just being lazy as in my case. I don't have the energy. I still will go by my husbands last name though. Just legally I sign my maiden name.
