Untitled2Greek wedding certificates routinely include a short statement as to the surname of children born of the marriage – a rather unusual inclusion but not without good reason! Increasingly, Greek women opt to retain their maiden name after marriage, so an early, officially recognised, decision on the children’s surname probably helps towards maintaining marital harmony. I can only sympathise with the teachers who, on parents’ evenings, not only have to remember the children’s surnames but also those of their mothers!
