Men Who Marry And Change Names...

When a woman marries a man,she changes her last name to his last name or adds it to have a compound last name or she might just leave the name thing and remain married in every other way...









Do you know that some men marry and change their names to their wives names?Are you shocked?If a woman can do it,so can a man!!!

Most of them do it for various reasons...some for love,some for financial reasons,some for status etc.....

Do you think any Nigerian man would agree to marry a wife and change his name to her last name?The cases I am talking about only refers to white men or Americans...

I know of a Nigerian Lady whose husband changed his name to hers because he had borrowed so much money with his....When she told me i told her something was not right and she became suspicious and found out when she came to the abroad that his old name was owing 'Igbese' upandan.

I read some days back about an American man who changed his last name to his Nigerian wife's last name and he explained that her last name refers to something blessed and he wanted their kids to have her name........

Is this normal to you`?would you Nigerian man do this?

  1. It sounds so awkward and weird. From the days of john the Baptist till now, it has been women changing their names to their husbands. I can't fit.

    1. In the days of John the Baptist, women didn't change their names. In Igbo land, it was introduced by the colonist.

    2. I didn't change my name. I married late and had built a career with my maiden name. Hubby actually suggested I retain my maiden name. 6years and counting.

  5. Nigerian man so obsessed with majoring in minor and minoring in major will never let his smelly ego allow him do so. As if he is selling his soul even if he comes from a cused linage or bears a name laced with damnation.

    1. If your father changed his surname to answer your mother's maiden name and you found out later as an adult, would you be cool with him?

      Will you advice your brothers (if you have any) to change the family surname to those of their wives?

      Always easy to advice on this blog and condemn. What you can not do and afford, do not suggest or advice another to do.

    2. This is 2019. People should do things that promote and advance them. If you bear cursed name why keep it when you can just change it? If you stand to reap a long term reward for marely changing a name that has not brought you peace, what would you gain by taking it to the grave?

      Well my Proff in school said he and his wife adopted a whole new surname when they got married because he wanted nothing to do with his family cos he feels they are wicked.

      If my brother's life is not mine and it's not my mission on earth to ensure a family name is engraved on the skies. No matter what you do, at some point a name is bound to go extinct.

  6. It is really weird o. But I think the major reason why a Nigerian man would try such is because of financial gains from the lady's family

  11. A Nigerian man will never change his last name to his wife’s own. The ‘man is the head of the house’ will always come to play in their heads

  12. I doubt if any Nigerian man can do it except in the case you mentioned about using his name for gbese upandan. I know oyinbo can do it but Nigerian men....mba!

  13. I think taking the name of your spouse (either way) is kind of antiquated. Scratch it altogether.

  14. Don't know my stand on this... if the man wants to bear his wife surname, well his choice... but according to God's word is it right for the man to change his name to that of his wife? ANG please comman answer this question biko.

    4. Ahhh Shooter Gyal calm down. We all look forward to particular comments from particular people because we want to hear what they have to say, controversial or not.

      This blog is a learning ground and even if you don't agree with someone, you can still broaden your views from their comments.

    1. Just like your blog ID. Why make the wife's name? Are there no other names from his father's side? Let him bear or answer his father's first name then

  16. Things that worries people nowadays... Changing name can be very draining in this part of the world that I live in.

    I can add the name to my social media accounts but, I'm not sure about adding it to different documents especially when the new partner's name is already on the government system as my legally married husband.

  18. I really want to retain my surname. Then my children can bear the same surname with their father.

    Someone told me it would affect my getting a visa if are travelling as husband and wife . Does anyone know anything about this?

    1. You have no right to retain your surname!
      In your tiny brain, you don't know it'll hinder your chances of getting a visa as a couple

    2. @shooter gyal... You are actually wrong.. I retained my surname after marriage. I have been married for 5years now, I have applied and obtained visas to over 7countries with hubby using my maiden name. USA, UK, NETHERLANDS, France, Germany etc.
      My marriage certificate have my maiden name on it. My kids birth certificates have my maiden name and hubby is not bothered by this..
      It's a matter of choice really.. So do u and let others do their own. As long as they are in agreement. Chikina

    3. It will not affect you getting a visa. Your marriage certificate should suffice.

  19. I'm a Nigerian and I took my wife's name(she's a Swede).. My father has never been in my life even though he is alive and well. My wife's father has always been there for his children and has been there for me aswell. Why should I give my children a last name that they cannot relate to? A man who abandoned his family?
    I'm happy with my decision

  20. Women changing their last names after marriage is an ancienttradition that is based on the archaic idea that a woman becomes her husband's property after marriage.

    If we're offended by a woman not taking a man's last name, why is it not offensive for a man not to take a woman's name? Just think about that.

    I believe that each individual has their own identity, is their own person, and a woman does not have to lose her identity because of marriage. Some women do not want to be known solely as "wife of Atutupuyoyo" or "Mrs Somebody", and that why is they choose to keep their own names.

    A marriage should be an equalitarian partnership, not a domination of one party by the other. And the name should reflect that. A woman should find a way to represent herself that is unique and empowering to her and it should be her choice.

  21. Even the name a woman has is not her own, are we not given our father's surname and then when we marry we take our husband's.

    Some names are ugly or mocked so much I don't see anything wrong in a man changing to his wife's name in such an instance.

  22. I know of a Nigerian pastor dat answers his wife's name.... different strokes for different folks

  23. I don't support this idea at all..It's not biblical.

  24. Na wa ooo, Nigerians can justify rubbish,even Michel change answers Obama, Ivanka Trump, Hillary Clinton all change to there husband name. If you like answer your mama name that's your cup of tea

  25. Islam actually insists on no name change. Each child should be forever mapped to their father. If you even adopt a child and the father's name is known, you are not to change it. Only permissible to give the child yours if you have no way of knowing the name.

    That is one of the many priviledges a Muslim woman has in Islam. I continue to bear my father's name even in marriage and my kids took on their father's too. My daughter would also grow up to forever bear her name.

    It is an archaic and unnecessary hassle if you ask me. A lot of women in the western world too no longer change their names solely on the basis of marriage.
