If it was the end of your family lineage would you ask your man to take on your surname in marriage?
In Japan and Italy they introduced this custom to prevent the family name from dying out when the family produced all females.

Whether the "lineage" ends with you or someone else down the line it's really not all that important with regard to how you live your life.
