I'll be giving Christian he's fathers last name but hyphen it with mine. Even if we were married it would be the same way, having my last is very important to me.

P.S Changing last names is very easy. No need to worry about it when the time comes.

What's so confusing about that?

You know I am with a man who I do't plan on staying with. My family thinks I should give my baby my last name, but out of respect to my child and her father I am giving her his last name.

Mine is getting my surname.Same situation as Nikki,Not married,nor with the guy.I know changing names is very easy so he/she can change it later if they want his.It's a native american name so it's kind of different.

i just wanted to add that just because your child doesnt have his last name does not make it hard to get child support hell i dont even have to put the fathers name on the birth certificate and i could still get child support from him

In my state the father and child do not have to have the same last name to get child support, just the same DNA.

My kids will definatly get his last name... no matter what. But people are different... When we get married I'm probably going to keep my last name though... so either way my kids and I won't have the same last name... Summer with the last name also ending in an ER just doesn't sound right.

I'm not married to my baby's dad although likely we will be at some pont but until than the baby is going to have my last name. I have two daughters with my ex-huband (we all have his surname still) and the only reason I haven't changed them all back to my maiden name is A) its free for me but about $300 per kid to switch and B)I travel (cross borders quite often) and notice taht you get more hassle if you and your kids have different last names. Infact, even though I have sole custody of my daughters, I had to carry a letter from their father with permission to be leaving the country with them!!!! Not dealing with that again thatnk you very much!!

when i had my son me and the father were not together, so i gave him my last name. Well we got together a few months later and i had to go through all the hassle of changing his name, social security, immunization records, the list goes on and on.

If i had to do it all over again, i'd just give the baby his dad's last name. It helps just in case you separate for child support and other things. Plus, in my culture, the child is seen as a bastard (sorry to sound so ugly) if he doesnt have his father's last name, because then it means he doesnt HAVE a father, even if it's not the case. I dont know, maybe if the dad has nothing to do with the child and will never ever see him, then i'd be ok to let the baby have your last name.

I am going to give my daughter her fathers last name. We currently live together but are not married. I plan on being with him through the long haul but who knows what may happen.
