I read on some website that after getting married, a woman has few options to change the surname but also the name. She can adopt her husband's name, to which is added an appropriate tip. Right? If yes, is it still used? Because it seems to me that this isn't too popular, at least now. ;)

Well, in the good old times the wife is totally get the husband's name, and her name get a little "after prefix", which is marked the women sex. For example:
Husband's name: Kiss Péter
The wife's new name: Kiss Péter

In Hungary, in every paperwork, You have to write down your maiden name and the new name, too. The mans don't have to do this. :)

Nowadays It's possible to get up only the family name. For example:
Kiss Viktória
(In this case, the "Viktória" is comes from your maiden name.

I don't know exactly, but I think It's possible to keep the full maiden name after the wedding nowadays.

How was work this in Polska? :)

Thanks :)

In Poland we have 3 possibilities:

- A woman remains with her maiden surname,
- adopt her husband's surname and combines them with her maiden surname
- abandons maiden surname and adopt her husband's surname.

on the example:

woman: Ewa Kowalska
man: Jan Nowak

1) Ewa Kowalska
2) Ewa Kowalska-Nowak
3) Ewa Nowak

Married women who opted option 3, in the documents also have to write down her maiden name, even though it isn't every day use.

Curiosity:
Husband can abandons his surname and adopt surname of his wife but it happens veeery rarely. ;)

btw.
Some Polish surnames have different forms for men and women, for example:

wife - husband:

Kowalska - Kowalski
Kamińska - Kamiński
Potocka - Potocki

Apparently the surnames ending on ski/ska or cka/cki have nobility origins. (So unfortunately I'm not a gentlewoman :D )

I'm one of this lucky beggars, because my sunrname ends on "ski": Truchlewski ;) This is the most popular end in Polish surnames.

There is one more case in Hungary. For example:
Kovács Dr. Újházy Ilona

In this case:
Kovács -> The wife's husband's family name
Dr. -> The PhD graduation, if she have one ;)
Újházy Ilona -> This is her maiden name.
