A married name is the family name adopted by a person upon marriage, and in speaking of the many cultures where the practice is
traditional for women, the maiden name is the family name that the married name replaces.
The term "maiden name" is only rarely applied in the traditionally rarer changes of family
name by men, or by either sex other than in connection with marriage. Nevertheless, the French and English-adopted term "née"
(pronounced ("nay") in English, in French), meaning "born," can be applied to a woman's family-name at birth that has been replaced for any reason. The French masculine inflection corresponding to née
is né; while less readily recognized by non-French-speakers, it is likewise applied to family names changed for any
reason. (The diacritics are sometimes omitted.)
Normally, a name change requires a legal procedure; however in some jurisdictions anyone who either marries or divorces
may change their name if he or she wishes. Traditionally in the Anglophone West, only women do so, but sometimes men as well
change their last names upon marriage.
