names of the goldenchildren

what will happen to the female children of patriarchal-phobic liberals when they marry? will they end up having three last names? i can just imagine: ariel clement-kendall marries and becomes ariel clement-kendall-simpson. assuming the earnest social conscience remains intact throughout subsequent female offspring, exactly how many potential last names are we talking here?

that would actually make a humorous detail in some satirical piece about a futuristic liberal society, where some women have ten or more hyphenated words in their last name, rather than submit to patriarchy's exclusionary practice.
