Well.. I was thinking about this the other day, my oh doesnt ever want to marry either.. and he has said before that he likes my surname (altho its a bit weird and it caused me hours of teasing at school and i always have to spell it whenever i need to say it to people..)..
If my child takes his name it will be the end of our family name as there have been no sons to carry it on. its a very unusual one too and I'd kinda like to keep it going as my mum has researched our family tree back to like 1700's or something.. by contrast my oh doesnt get on with his dad, his mum has remarried so doesnt share the name, his sister is soon to marry so our lil one will not have any family who share his name other than my partner.. I think it might be nice for the baby to have a family who also share his name (grandparents etc..) plus it would feel odd for my child to not have my surname...
its a confusing one!! I've yet to bring it all up with oh tho as it only occured to me last night that it might be for the best for baby to take my name.. we shall see what he says!!

I am married but I chose not to take DH's surname. Baby will have his surname. My reasoning? It sounds better and all of the cats/dog have his surname at the vets.

Me and my boyfriend are not married but the baby will take his surname. My parents weren't married when i was born and I took my dads surname. You could consider a double barrel surname though?

Our boys were given my surname and our girls were given dh's surname. Somehow the pets all got registered with dh's surname.

My sister gave my nephew FOBs surname and then regretted it when they split. Actually, it was such a bad split that no one ever called the baby by his full name cause it was a touchy subject. He was always just Jackson Alexander- first and middle. He's only 2 now but we finally call him by his full name sometimes so he knows his surname. My sister figured even though she regrets it, it's legally his name so she better accept it.

My parents weren't even together when I was born so I took my mothers surname. My sister's dad was a PSYCHO so he pretty much forced my mom to give her his surname, which I HATE! OH & I aren't married but we will be getting married eventually so I'm giving baby his surname. If we were to split I hope I don't regret it but, we shall see!!!

My baby will have my OHs last name, if unmarried i think the baby should always have the dads last name if they're still together, in some circumstances where the dad has f'd off and don't want to know then 100% have the mums x

We have had this discussion, my OH isnt keen on marriage but hasnt ruled it out either.
We have been together for nearly 10 years and I think the baby will have his surname (or perhaps both together, depends on what baby names we come up with)
