Just curious how many women are giving their last name to their unborn child.

My baby is going to have my last name. The father wants her to have his, but we are not together. We just started talking again. Last time I talked to him before now was in Sept. We seperated when I got pregnant, my choice. I didn't want the stress of boyfriend issues and being pregnant at the same time. I am 35 wks2d. The dad wants to be a part of her life, but because we are not together I think she should have mine.

My babys having my last name, my ex wants hardly anything to do with me now so why should i give him the satisfaction of naming my baby after him?!

My baby girl is going to have my last name, her "dad" wonts her to have his last name but denies her at the same time. Men, they really dont know what they want at all.

Our baby's last name will be that of my boyfriend. We aren't married, so I still have my given surname of course. But this is based on the fact that I like his last name so much better than mine! :)

Up until a few weeks ago my twins were taking their fathers name cos thats what he wanted and i had no problem with it. Then he decided he wanted to put his energy into fixing things with his ex rather than trying to sort out our babies' futures. So i cut him out of the picture and they will now take my surname much to his displeasure..... it comes down to the situation i guess. If you have a supportive father then you would be a little more inclined to give it their name but when the daddy is being a (insert profanity here) generally you lean more towards your own.

Both the father and I agreed that its gunna have the burden of both of my last names (I have my mothers and fathers) Its more or less because he's not going to have anything to do with the child, but its for more complicated reasons than it sounds, since we've talked it through thoroughly =)

my daughter has her daddys last name

I really really advise that if you are single please please do not give the fathers last name. I am so thankful that my son has my last name. It makes life so much easier. I am getting married and my son sees my fiance as his daddy and we will be changing my sons last name when we get married. If i had given the fathers last name this could not be possible. If you are travelling out of country you would need a note from the father giving permission to go. It just is a dumb thing to do so please use your last name.

I am 32, had my first (son) at 17. What did I know? I gave my child his father's last name. Why? He has never in fifteen years provided any kind of support for my child, and now he's an ex-con. I wanted to change his name to mine but I decided against it. I actually never plan to get married. I know it's a bit backwards BUT my parents were married and I was still a b___d. I have never lived in the same household with both parents. Thirteen years later I got pregnant with my second child (daughter). Come to find out, when I told the father he told me that he had a wife. Wow. She has my last name. Now two years later, I'm due any day now with my third child (daughter). She too will have my last name. I am military and it works for me. I have been burned too many times. I have trust issues. And unfortunately sometimes things (blessings) come about that are not planned. I love my children to no end. All I can say is that if for nothing else those men were good for, I was blessed with my kids. Now the father of my unborn child suggested that I get rid of the baby so that "we can lead NORMAL lives". Can you believe that? The last two are military and so am I. I get support for my second child and I will definitely get support for the third (and last). I don't feel ashamed about my situation. I would rather be a single parent, happy with my kids than to be living a lie with someone because society says I should.

I know im late but that's a major problem between my boyfriend and i he wants the baby to have his last name, but i just believe that if ur not married the child should carry the mother's last name cause what if (God Forbid) I have kids by another man and im not married then i will have kids with different last names to me that's not good.
