Quick question: Is Brittany Cartwright about to become Brittany Taylor — or Brittany Cauchi? Or is she staying Brittany Cartwright? After all, the Vanderpump Rules Kentucky-born SURver is about to walk down the aisle with Jax Taylor... whose actual last name isn't Taylor. Shocking, and a little but confusing, we know. So, let's back up. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

As Jax describes in the video above, the name Jax Taylor is actually a moniker that was bestowed upon him when he was 21 years old. In the thick of his modeling career, Jax was told that his birth name, Jason Cauchi, simply wasn't going to work. And so, the very model-friendly name Jax Taylor was born! 

So now that we know the back story, let's return to the question at hand: Is Brittany prepared to be a Taylor or a Cauchi? And how about the couple's future children? What will their last name be? Take a look at the clip above to hear where the future bride and groom stand on the last name dilemma.

Catch Brittany and Jax on Vanderpump Rules every Monday at 9/8c. Preview, below.
