So, I decided to change my last name after getting married. Now, instead of "Wilson" it is "Wilson Sayres". No hyphen. Yes, there is a space between them.
I figured it was the best option for me. Now, if I choose, I can still publish under Wilson, without having to worry about justifying who I am when applying for grants, or "losing" any of my previous publications, but I can also receive things to Mrs. Sayres without having to carry my marriage license around with me forever to prove I really am married to Mr. Sayres. It's the best of both worlds.
Synopsis: Legally my last name is "Wilson Sayres" but professionally or personally I can be either Wilson or Sayres or Wilson Sayres!
