NameSwitch has interviewed some trail blazing men who took a bold step into the future. When you're planning a wedding, whether small and informal or grand-scale, there's a myriad of tasks to organise.

And, these days, guys are expected to pull their weight when it comes to sorting everything from flower arrangements and wedding cakes to transport and catering. But, before you even walk down the aisle to say, "I do", there's another important factor to consider – whether you intend to take your partner's surname.

Traditionally, women have assumed their husband's name upon marriage. But, in the 21st century, things are quite different due to changes in people's thinking, same-sex marriages, and personal situations that may dictate how you or both partners wish to be known after tying the knot. Increasingly, men are opting to change their surnames after marriage. While this may delight, perplex or surprise some of you, there are many reasons why a man might wish to adopt a different name upon saying 'I do'.

NameSwitch spoke to five men who've been through the process over the last few years to find out what some of these reasons are and how they went about it to gain a man's perspective on changing your name after marriage.
