Relationships between attitude towards family names and perspectives on occupation, marriage, and the sense of family were investigated. A questionnaire survey was conducted with college students (N = 242, 86 men and 157 women). Attitudes toward family name were assessed using two indices: "Feelings Toward Family Name, assessing if the person liked it or not," and "Resistance to Changing the Family Name." Results indicated that men had a positive correlation between attitudes about the family name and the sense of family, whereas there were no significant relationships between attitude about the family name and views on profession and marriage. However, in women, attitudes about the family name did not show any relationship with the sense of family, whereas it had a positive correlation with views on professions and a negative correlation with views on marriage. The results suggest that when men become conscious about taking over the role as the head of the family, they develop affection for their family name and become reluctant to change it. On the other hand, women become more conscious about having to change their family name when they get married and think about its influence on their future careers.
