I wouldn't change my name for anyone or anything.
But I think that people should do what they want. If you are happy changing your name, then you should change it. If it bothers you at all, you shouldn't.
ETA - When I got married the first time (1977) there were still places in the US that REQUIRED women to change their name to that of their husband. I believe that is no longer true (Hawaii was the last state that required it if I remember right).
So at least we now have the freedom to decide for ourselves.
