I've decided to take my girls last name when I get married next month. I hate mine she hates mine so I don't see the issue.

just because it goes against the old traditions of marriage and the typical gender roles society has. Frankly though who cares? If it's want you want to do then it shouldn't matter what other's think. I know women who haven't changed their name, I know one couple where the man took the wife's last name, and I know couples who have completely created a new last name and used their old last name as a middle name.
Family (surnames) names aren't quite what they used to be in the ancient past when family names where so linked to social standing1
