Kept mine after getting married. I like it, why change it. No issue with those that do, each to their own!

I went to teach on a course. I was the only desi female teacher with a desi name; the rest had taken their English husband's names..Dr Smith, Dr Scullion. It felt like an erasure of brown identity tbh.

Married to non desi and kept my name. Would’ve kept it if married to desi too, as it’s traditional in our family for girls not to take hubbys name.
