    Your surname! You can always change it, the boys might want to change theirs in the future back to yours or maybe you could hyphen the boys names as well

    Your surname.

    Oh dear- depends on her state because they all have different rules.

    I would definately use the same as her brothers.

    Could you add your own surname as a middle name for her and for each of her brothers by deedpoll?

    My BIL has a rather large and complex family, his mother was married 3 times and had kids with each husband - each of the kids have the father's surname. They were all told they could change it to the 3rd husband (who raised most of them and is the one still around) but all of them have stuck with their original surnames. While the parent's don't get along they are still fond of their dad.

    I agree with one of the above posters, that if you had a break up early in a relationship with no other children then you could give the child your name, but you have three other children to the same man who have the same surname, I would keep it consistent and if your ex turns out to be a non-existant father to them as they grow up they can choose to adopt your name when they're old enough for it to be their choice.

    I would not like to do both surnames. I think I might give her his surname so she doesnt feel left out or wonder why her name was different even though she has the same dad and then leave it up to her if she decides to change it later.

    I find it difficult because I would love to give her my last name, but I want to do the right thing and I think that is to give her the same name as her brothers. I just wanted to know what others thought before I made my decision and make sure that it is the right one. Thanks for your help!
