Chrissy Teigen gave the best reason for not taking John Legend's last name.


Chrissy Teigen is, as you probably know, a Twitter superstar (she's a real life superstar, too). Her clapbacks are legendary, and she's funny as all get out. So when a woman on Twitter asked a general question about why some women choose not to take their husbands' names after marriages, Teigen had the perfect answer.

Twitter user @_MercyFul posted the tweet, which at the time of writing, has 670 likes and over four thousand replies.

The most common answer seemed to be just that women were used to and or liked their own last names.

At least one person (and probably many more) pointed out that women taking men's last name after marriage was a tradition started by — you guessed it — men.

But it was Chrissy Teigen who had the funniest answer:

Teigen, who's married to actor/musician John Legend, answered, "My husband didn't even take his last name?"

Search Google and you'll find out that John Legend's given name is actually John Roger Stephens. Yeah, Legend is certainly catchier.

And Chrissy Teigen is definitely Chrissy Teigen. She's not Chrissy Legend and she's certainly not Chrissy Stephens.


Women choosing to take their husbands' last names after marriage is traditional and totally fine, but women choosing to keep their names is completely fine, too. Now we're just waiting for the era where men start to take women's names after marriage. Why not?
