@Tifa your statement is somewhat ambiguous.

comment Is there a verb for identifying a married woman who is known by her maiden name?
just noticed that. I no longer disagree with your answer but I don't think it answers the question although clearly it does address it. Cheers.

I'm afraid I didn't follow your reply to me - would you clarify for me? I certainly don't want to down vote if I'm wrong :|

I understand and agree with your translation; my point is that the request is for a word that specifically indicates that the women continues to use her maiden name which I believe née does not. Consider Jane Jones who is married to Jim Jeffries; while most Jane's would go by Jane Jeffries this one goes by Jane Jones. Construct a sentence using née that conveys that Jane goes by Jones ant not by Jeffries where the distinction is implied strictly by the word née. Notice that Jane Jones née Jane Jones does not convey the desired meaning.

You probably mean adjective since you want to describe an attribute of an object.

I think the question is about a married women who uses her maiden name as her last name even though she is still married. Née refers to her maiden name and does not indicate that the married women actually continues to use her maiden name as her last name.
