    Me and DP are having the same discussion at the moment. I like her surname better than mine as it is a bit more exotic but I also feel a bit weird having a baby and not having the same surname - though I also see it as a nice way to bond non bio mum and bubs. I thought about changing my name to DPs surname too but I'm not sure. Hyphening the two sounds band said aloud. Plus we wanted to give the baby two middle names and that would be waaaaay to much name for anyone!

    Id like to know people find it when they change their name to DPs surname with DPs family? I wonder how DPs mum would react. She loves me like a daughter but even so...

    I'm changing my surname to my dp. I don't care what the family thinks. Were getting married. And it makes us feel more like a family. We cant wait to be " the trappels".
    It's only $120 to change.
    Plus means all our babies would be trappel automaticaly. And your right. Means non bio mum feels like she has some connection.

    I say. Change ur name.

    Gf and I are still figuring it out. We've got a while before baby is born. We don't like the patriarchal nature of our inherited surnames, but not 100% sure about making one up either. Maybe if we think of a good one...

    PS - sorry for all the thread necromancy - I'm new...

    DS has DH's surname. I use DH's surname too, but haven't legally had it changed yet. Sure, we got married three years ago. But having a marriage certificate doesn't change your name. You still have to legally change it through dpoll! (I didn't know that until after I was married *chuckle*).

    I'm too lazy to change my name legally, and if I'm honest it's never caused me any problems. I've been through lots of official channels with my married name and no one has asked for official documentation that it was ever changed so yeah heh.

    So any and all of our children will/have DHs surname, rather than mine. My maiden name is flipping ugly anyway if you ask me, and a lot of people get confused that a very celtic looking woman from a family of the same (pale skin, freckles, you get the idea) could have a Serbian surname. Don't ask, it takes a lot of explaining hahaha.

    We both changed our surnames and our kids will have the new one, do we all be the same.


    No reason you can't hypernate yours or everyone's.
    Sorry just realised this is same sex section, on my phone and it won't let me delete?
