It was an opportunity too good to pass up for Dr Lindsay Sleeper, a US paediatric anaesthetist who decided to take her husband’s name rather than remain a Newton. 

“I never thought I would change my name when I got married — I was the first (medical) Dr Newton in my family and I’m very proud of that,” the Michigan anaesthetist posted on Twitter.
