If anyone has ever wondered whether or not Marco Perego is a feminist or not, they probably don’t any longer. He recently married Zoe Saldana, and in an unlikely twist, decided to take her last name. It isn’t uncommon for celebrities to keep their show names in public, but to actually change their names in private. Fans like Keith Mann know that many celebrities still go by their popular name but in personal life they have their husbands last name.
It is an usual stance to do, although it is becoming more common practice for a woman to at least maintain her last name during marriage. This is something that many individuals would not have thought about a few decades ago, but it has become seen as edgy or even the “hip” thing to do. It truly has become the first real time in the modern historical era where individuals are looking into doing something like this.
Of course, if more and more individuals start doing this, it could prove rather interesting to see family lineage and even make it difficult to trace certain families based on last names. However, it ultimately is up to the couple and what each individual decides to do with it. It is not something that truly means all that much, as there is the classical line of “what’s in a name,” but many people are proving that there really is importance in a name.
