I think my great-grandma would smile at my friend list

Whatever ill facebook has done to society, at least it has brought back the sensible custom of using maiden names as middle names when identifying one’s self.  It’s might not be best for everyone, but it’s less clunky than hyphenating *, less awkward than having a different last name than one’s spouse and children,  and more helpful than dropping a maiden name altogether.

*If you’re Welsh, having a hyphenated name is cool.  Maybe it has to do with the melody of Welsh names, or the fact that if you put two Welsh surnames together, you get a reasonable number of vowels for one surname.
