Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

Unjoined Trills have a given name and a Family name. Upon joining, the joined entity replaces the host's family name with that of the symbiote; e.g. Ezri Tegan became Ezri Dax when she was joined.

I don't know whether familial names are inherited maternally or paternally, however.
