Surname Saturday - A Ladies Game

How many surnames are in your family tree if you simply begin going backwards, from yourself, and following only maternal lines?

Here's mine:

Me: Cynthia Ann Beane

My Mother: Lois Velleda Dreher [married Beane]

My Grandmother: Irene Caroline Banet [married Dreher] 1906-1989

My Gr-Grandmother: Adeline Josephine Eve [married Banet] 1867-1958

My Gr-Gr-Grandmother: Annette DuBois [married Eve] 1840-1870

My Gr-Gr-Gr-Grandmother: Magdelena Houin [married DuBois] born 1821

And what about you? What does your maternal line look like?
