Re: Why would a husband take his wife's surname? #unitedkingdom #general #lithuania

My grandfather changed his name to his wife's maiden name after he
arrived in America. His name was Chrzan difficult to pronounce and
when someone asked him to spell it he gave his wife's name instead,
Silberstein. So they kept her name, and when his brothers arrived they
took that name too. My father's uncles on both sides had the same last
name, including two Benjamins.
