I am with the keep your name crowd. It is not only traditional in our culture but it is normal. I know of no one who has changed his name because of marriage.
As to whether a woman not changing her name shows a lack of commitment, I can only say that my ex-wife did not change her name and she provided irrefutable evidence of her lack of commitment.

Bur Rod is a paratrooper. Therefore, he gets infinity bonus points...

I think that purposely rejecting a harmless tradition by keeping your maiden name or hyphenating does suggest that a woman is making a special point about her individuality in a relationship that I believe should be a union. The same thing would be suggested about a man if the tradition were for him to take his wife's name. Of course, it's only a suggestion and separate from the truth, but that is my first thought when I see the hyphen. Just as my first thought when I see someone wearing a wedding ring is that they must be married. It is only a symbol, though.

It at least means I always obey the law . . . of gravity . . .
