"I was never going to change my name to Rocknroll," the actress and wife of businessman Ned Rocknroll tells Britain's Telegraph newspaper and reported by People. "I've never changed my name to anything, so I didn't see a reason to start now."

She adds proudly: "I quite like Kate Winslet; in fact I think it's very flashy." There's a more practical reason for her decision, too – to keep the Winslet name going, at least for now. "I'm one of three girls, and we have one boy in our family," she says. "So essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother, and he doesn't have any children at the moment." That seems to be a great reason t keep her name but also it is such a beautiful name and fits her so well.
