How did Indira Gandhi get her last name?

A question from Yahoo! Answers:

Why did indira gandhi get her sirname as gandhi?

She married a Parsi man named Feroze Gandhi (no relation to Mahatma Gandhi, other than that they both come from Gujarat) in 1942. The marriage was volatile, and there were long periods of estrangement between the two. Feroze Gandhi died in 1960.
