Name Changes

My daughter has recently divorced. I expected her to change her name back to her family name or keep her former husbands name. Why? Tradition? My last name is a good name? Insted she changed it to "Sea" as in a large body of water. Why and what does this say about our family? What will others think? Will it effect her to do so? Confused.

Others will think she is a little odd. They will think that your family is like most families. We all have somebody who is a little odd. If she is able to tell them that you didn't make a big fuss about it, they will think that YOU are very cool.

I was concerned that her actions said she was not wanting to be associated with the family or ashamed of? I can not think of any reason why. Paranoia?
