I think the only way it would be unethical to keep the ex's name would be if the divorced person did it ONLY to use it to embarass the ex/new spouse in the future---maybe if the ex was a judge in a small town and the name keeper was doing bad tricks (public drunkeness, prostitution, fraud, whatever) solely to "get back at" the ex.

But even if that were to happen, all it would do would make people say to the ex, "gee, good riddance to the name keeper---you were sure smart to move on!"
