Kourtney Kardashian, who has adopted her husband Travis Barker’s last name, has given an explanation for her choice. On May 22nd of 2022, the 46-year-old drummer for Blink-182 and the creator of POOSH exchanged vows during a wedding ceremony in Italy. When it comes to planning weddings, they have Bennifer beat.

The extravagant wedding was only one of three for the newlyweds. This included a “practice” wedding they had in Las Vegas without a license. The Barkers were officially wed in a courthouse ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. The couple has only grown more fond of each other since then. With the news of their IVF journey, the change of the name is the next big step the couple has taken to show their love for each other.

The Kardashian recently revealed that altering her name was not a difficult decision. The recently wed couple have quite the history of love for each other. Especially with their continuing IVF journey to have another member in their family. The decision to change her name to Kourtney Kardashian Barker seems to be aligned with the fact that the celebrity may lose her brand identity if she completely removed Kardashian from her name. While it is a good decision in terms of business aspects, it shows how much her career has mixed in with the celebrity’s personal life.

It’s a custom followed not just here in Hollywood, but worldwide. Several famous women decided to change their surnames after marriage. All our life, our name has been our identity and it defines who we are. Women in any country have been taking their partners’ last names for centuries. However, nowadays, thanks to the discussion on feminism, equality, and women empowerment we see women owning their names proudly.

The patriarchal notion is that hetero-sexual wives are often asked to disown their pre-marital identities. The same can be said about Kourtney Kardashian as she states “It was a given. It was just a given. It wasn’t a thought. Now my middle name is Kardashian.”

It seems like the responsibility to solidify the commitment relies on the female partner. Female celebs often change their names, legally and take on their husbands’ names upon marriage. However, they still use their maiden names for work as changing the name altogether runs the risk of losing recognition altogether. Men, on the other hand, do not have to answer questions like these. Mainly due to sexist tradition that’s taken on the form of being the norm.

As for why Kourtney Kardashian changed her name, the celebrity stated “Because I came from a blended family, we have experience, and also we’ve known each other and I’ve had my own relationship with his kids for 10 years … I think it makes it easy.” The Kardashian clearly has a serious emotion for the drummer of Blink-182, Travis Barker. Changing her name legally after building on the Kardashian name must have had its own share of consequences. The fact that she still went through with the decision without hesitation is no easy feat for a celebrity, especially for one who has her entire brand known by her name.
