    Which is correct?

    Is it correct to ask "what was your maiden name"? Isn't "what is your maiden name?" more correct? My maiden name is my maiden name, isn't it? And won't it be forever?

    Yes, your maiden name is your maiden name. The question could be "What was your name before marriage?"
