What are you planning on doing about a surname for your baby? OH and I haven't agreed on this yet. We're not married, but even if we do get married in the future it's really unlikely that I'll take his name. I just personally don't believe in it, it wouldn't feel right to me. I would possibly consider giving myself a double-barrel surname but that's as much as I'd do. So we've got the dilemma: - Do we go traditional and give the baby OH's surname? Then I'll feel like I have no connection to the baby in name. We could give them my surname as a middle name, especially if we have a boy, but I'm not convinced..... - Do we give them a double-barrel name? Then I could keep my surname in the future and still have a connection to the LO. If the LO really doesn't like using a double-barrel name then they could just use OH's day to day, but at least on their birth certificate we will obviously be related! This is my preference but the trouble is, this is OH's least favourite option.... Would love to hear what others are planning!
