Why do women STILL change their names


Angelina Jolie has taken Brad Pitt's name but not vie versa. Why do women still change their names - sometimes several times?

    We kept our own names, although we thought of combining both names for both of us. We gave our son both our names - but that can't go on indefinitely! If BOTH partners change their names or keep them there is at least some equality. Thx

    Amal Alamuddin is certainly a person in her own right. What a pity she didn't set an example to other women. I don't suppose men dream of being Mr (somebody else). I wonder if this is her first marriage - has she also been Mrs X rs Y and Mrs Z?

    I really can't understand it when women now have the choice. I can't help but think of slaves and dogs that change their name with their owners. Thanks for your comment.
