My rationale was based on the fact that our branch of "Worden" was going to
die out if I didn't do something as I'm the only one that had children. It
made sense to me at the time, a dewy-eyed 20 year old, anyway.

Are they really going to call their kids 'Worden-Rogers-Jones-Smith?! To
which I generally reply, "No my problem." ;)
