Spouse took mine (hyphenated), kids have mine too (unhyphenated, but they have spouse's name as a second middle name.)  I kept mine, unhyphenated.

Truth be told, I want my kids to choose, depending on what they look like/identify with (this will make sense to those who know me and the SO).

I'm a big fan of the wife (or SO, ahem, sorry) keeping her last name. I mean, what's the point anyway?

The kids, however, are taking my last name, even if it kinda sucks . . .

Hyphenated, really? I mean you really want your kids to be the ones in school with the hyphenated name? Not to mention the fact that if you hyphen your kids names you must come to the conclusion that you're just creating a temporary compromise/solution. After all, if everyone hyphened, look at what a mess names in this country would become after just two generations.
