Question from Laura - Henry VIII's wives' signatures

Did Henry VIII's wives retain their maiden names to some degree, e.g. in their signatures? If so, was this normal (especially when, I would have thought, they would not have wanted to flaunt their non-royal roots). And if they did this, was it perhaps to distinguish between different "Anne the Queen" and "Katherine the Queen"s?
