Nontraditional Last Name Stories

Alice Guyot

Alice Guyot’s mother took her father’s last name due to traditional practices. Her parents divorced and her mother took back her natal surname and the children kept their father’s last name. Both parents are now both in same-sex relationships.

When asked her future thoughts on her last name with respect to marriage, she expressed that she would most likely take her husbands name as long it isn’t hard to pronounce or difficult to spell.
