That's very interesting. I love the Google rationale. :) When you Google me you mostly get me, and then a bunch of Swedish and Spanish people. I took my husband's name because it was prettier, easier to pronounce and spell, expected, easier for when there are children, easier for when we live in Sweden, and because I am not that into my Dad's side of the family.


Hmmm, well I took my husband's name because I didn't like my adoptive name and this was the most logiacl alternative.

You could keep your current name as a pen name for professional purposes and change it legally for the kids and etc..

Or you could hyphenate it for professional reasons, and change it fully for personal stuff. (This helps up your Googles.)

But after twenty years with a career and references I wouldn't completely change my professional name if I were you. You won't have any connection anymore to all your previous references and writing, which is not helpful, I think.
