While it is the norm for women to take on their husband’s surname when they get married, a certain design manager has revealed on Twitter that it is going to be the other way round.
Identified as Ryan Morrison, he took to the microblogging platform to reveal that he would be getting married soon and intends to take his wife’s last name instead of her taking his.
Ryan explained that he was doing so because of the history of his own surname. According to him, the name Morrison was chosen by his grandfather who was a priest and had a secret family.

Since priests were/are not allowed to get married and have children, his grandfather picked a random name from a phonebook.
Explaining further, he wrote: “On the other hand, my wife’s last name comes from her Japanese father, and can be traced back for hundreds and hundreds of years. Since my father-in-law doesn’t have siblings, and my wife only has a sister, there’s not a whole lot of people to carry on the Miyoshi name.
I figured her name is the better choice out of the two, so why not! As of tomorrow afternoon, I will no longer be Ryan Morrison, and instead: Ryan Miyoshi”
