All decisions of this nature should be made by mutual agreement between husband and wife. If you cannot agree, then you should follow convention (using your husband's last name). Otherwise, you risk unnecessary strife within your household. Unless you are in business for yourself and have made a name for yourself, or you are a famous person, then it's best to keep your husband's name. If you are proud of your family name then register your names as .... EXAMPLE: Lisa Smith-Jones (your surname first, his name last)
