    Unhappy HELP!!! Baby's surname?

    I have three boys to my ex husband and am pregnant with his girl but we have not been together for the entire pregnancy. Naturally the boys have his surname but I kept my last name even after marriage. I am so confused as to whether to give her his last name or mine. What would you do!?

    I would probably give her the same name as her brothers. It's the same dad so she should have the same surname.

    I think it all depends on whether he'll be in the LO's life or not.

    If it were just her, I would give her your name - but in this situation, I would want her and her brothers to have the same surname.

    Id personally, have to give her the same name as her brothers. If she was a only child, id give her yours.

    I'd want all my kids to have the same name. Weather it be your or his.

    Good luck.

    I'd give her the same as her brothers. If they didn't exist, I'd say your name, but I think it's probably better for her to share her sibling's surname (especially as they all share a father) than be different to them.

    I want to do the right thing by her but I know my judgment is clouded because I hate their father so much . He only sees the kids a few days every 5th week and I despise giving her his last name when he was never around. But I should think of it as the kids name and not his - that might make it feel better
