If Mandela were your father or grandfather would you change your name after marriage?
(19)
In the spirit of the celebration of the Late
Great South African Leader, a debate has
sprung up on social media and it is all
emanating from the great name/legacy
which Nelson Mandela made for himself
while he was still alive.
According to South Africans on Twitter,
the
granddaughters and great-
granddaughters
of the legendary Nelson Mandela have
retained the Mandela name even after
marriage and there’s an argument about
whether it’s right or not.
It has also been revealed that some of the
husbands of Mandela’s granddaughters
have taken on their wives surname,
Mandela, and even gave the surname to
their children just so their lineage can be
associated with Mandela.
The Mandela centenary celebrations took
place yesterday, July 18, 2018, to mark the
100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson
Mandela. The occasion started the
surname
discussion on Twitter and while some are
against the women keeping their
surname
because it’s a popular one, some men
have
said they would gladly take on their wives
surname if it would open doors for them.
If you were a Mandela, would you change
your surname after marriage?
