So, I am now (thank the gods) starting to get some recognition for my work. I already have a couple plays published under my maiden name.

I am getting married in July and I don't know what to do with my name.

I am concerned about the legalities involved. I am sure someone out there has dealt with this before, so if you have, please, I could use the advice.

I definitely want to take his last name. I was thinking:

Myfirstname Mymaidenname Hislastname and dropping my middle name.

Since I am on my birth certificate and everything else as myfirstname mymiddlename mymaidenname, I am guessing I would have to get those changed.

Basically i would like to go by my maiden name professionally and my married name for everything else. I don't know if I want to hyphenate my maiden name with his last name because wilson-wood is kind of cumbersome.

Thoughts? Anyone else out there deal with this?
