He marries Seven apparently in the lost Endgame Timeline.
Does she take his voidy absence of a last name and now becomes just Seven or Just Anika? Or since nature abhors a vacuum, does he take her family name or names, making his new John Hancock: Chakotay Hansen or Chakotay Tertiary Adjutant to Unimatrix 001?
Why should a woman take the last name of his husband? I know it's a surprise to some, but among all western nations, it's only in the US that it's still customary.
This was something the boyfriend and I discussed awhile back...(and I can go with the guy
taking the name of the woman for a change, but I guess that is up to the couple).
As for Chakotay taking Seven's 'human' last name...Hmm, I don't think that'll please the C/J'ers...no matter the timeline.
