Right to name: which surname after the wedding?

In addition to the wedding preparations, the bride and groom should also think about the future family name. This decision should be carefully considered, because the chosen surname will be borne throughout your life. In earlier times the woman had to take over the man’s family name. Nowadays, however, the bride and groom have so many options that it can be difficult to decide.

Permitted variants of the choice of name after the wedding ceremony

  • Even today, the traditional choice of names is largely chosen. In this case, the children together have this name. Example: After the wedding, Ms. Fischer takes over the last name of her husband Weber. The children then also bear the Weber family name.

  • Another option offered to the newlyweds is a double name, which is, however, only worn by the man or the woman. The order doesn’t matter. The other partner keeps his names, which the children will also wear. Example: The man is still called Weber. The woman can choose between Fischer-Weber and Weber-Fischer. The children together then bear the surname Weber.
