In my family's case, my paternal grandfather (surname SPECTOR) took his
future mother-in-law's maiden name as a way to ensure his entry into
Canada in 1927. He needed to be sponsored by a relative so he chose to
portray himself as his future mother-in-law's youngest brother. After
he entered Canada he revised it slightly (VOLTMAN to WALTMAN) and
married my grandmother!
