What's in a Last Name?

So for almost the last year or so I've been working on a family tree and I have to say I sort of have fallen in with my mother's maiden name Maciejowksa (or Maciejowski if you are male.) There is a lot of history behind it. Like how we are descended from the cardinals and such in Poland back in the 1400s? Yea, pretty cool. Or the 'Maciejowski Bible'. And because it was a noble family, who married other noble families, it means that a lot of the marraiges and children were recorded.

I plan on doing a whole long post about family history and my journey with learning more about my family history. But for now, I ask a question to you all.

I am thinking about perhaps changing my last name back to Maciejowska when I become of legal age. Now does that seem reasonable, or does that make me like my 2nd great grandmother who was so snobbish she made her husband take her last name in order to keep the Maciejowski name going? Hmmm...

The Family Historian,
