In most cultures including Nigerian/African culture when a woman gets married she takes on her husband’s name and let’s go of her father’s name. For the more progressive woman, she would either keep her own last name of hyphenate to acknowledge her father and hubby.
You just don’t hear of husbands taking on their wife’s last name. But that is exactly what Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana‘s husband of two years did! Italian artist Marco Perego has officially forfeited his name and taken on his wifey’s last name. He is now addressed as: Marco Saldana.
