Name-hyphenation! Valerie doesn’t like it, but Amy and I plan to hyphenate our surnames. Imagine the fun people will have taking messages from the “Koslowski-Ordovezas!” Even without hyphenation, though, Filipino tradition dictates the woman keeping her maiden name as a middle name, and passing it down as a middle name to the children. Plus, I’ve known one or two husbands who adopted their own wives’ maiden names for their own middle names as a gesture of oneness. All I know is, should Amy and I marry, the “K.O.” initials are just too tempting to pass up: the baby-name acronym possibilities are endless! Valerie has a few suggestions.
