I like the idea of "inventing" a new surname, that's quite tempting.

I wonder as well what the same-sex couples will do, probably combined names I suppose.

Yes, at least that you have the possibility. For example if you know the guy Jari Sarasvuo, he has invented that name himself. His surname at birth was Heinonen.

I'm not very picky. If I'm to marry someone with a beautiful name, I could very well take hers and drop mine.

I'd have to invent a really good name for it to be better than my current one but I suppose there's rules about the names you invent *sigh*

Maria Alvarez Sanchez married Jose Castro Martinez.
She becomes Maria Castro de Alvarez, commonly referred to as Senora Castro,
Their daughter is Isabella Castro Alvarez.
She married Juan Hernandez Lopez, and becomes Isabella Hernandez de Castro, or Sra. Hernandez.
Their children will be Carla and Ruben Hernandez Castro.
No, the general pattern in Latin America is the reverse.
Maria Alvarez Sanchez married Jose Castro Martinez becomes Maria Alvarez de Castro, and Isabella Castro Alvarez married Juan Hernandez becomes Isabella Castro de Hernandez.
In that case "de" in front of a surname refers to the family name of the husband, not the paternal one.
And normally, father's family name goes first than husband's one.

Quite confusing.
victus, we used to carry the Spanish naming system in the Philippines before following the Anglo way, but I noticed, the use of " de " was not usually practise, " y " was commonly used. What about in Spain ? Is " y " commonly used too ?

I just want to point out the obvious here -- it's much easier to take that stance if you're a man.

I should add, I said hyphenated as if it always is. it's not. I was really trying to emphasize how the woman's original last name remains.
In border areas people have semi-adopted the way things are done in the states.
