    In the first post, the author stated Laura's maiden name was "Meeker". I believe it was Meehan. Who's right?

    Laura's maiden name is Meeker. It is said several times in the episode 'Oh How We Met the Night That We Danced' which can be viewed on sites like Hulu.

    Both are correct. In the first few seasons she was refered to as Laura Meeker. The later seasons it was Meehan.

    The original name Meeker was was based on MTM's actual last name at the time: she was married to Richard Meeker. When they divorced a few months into the show's run, the character's maiden name was changed to Meehan.
