Unless custom and practice has changed, won't she have a problem with 
"official" communications automatically double barrelling her name with 
yours (whether the current one or any adopted one)? For instance, my 
mother is always officially addressed as "Mevr A C Koopman-Bootsman" 
(she is the "Bootsman"). That is what will be on her death certificate.
