Oh pesca, I'm so sorry that you made that decision in a moment of weakness and it has backfired so badly on you and your little family of 3. I did a similar thing; all the warning signs were there, my grandmother tried to talk me out of it, my ******* ex even missed the premature birth of my son because he was 'fishing'... And I named my son after him. So when he's in trouble, I have to remember in the heat of the moment to shout 'name-exe's surname-my surname' instead of 'name-ex's first name-ex's surname'.
I wish I could change it. But HE, who chooses to have ZERO contact, refuses. And my boy would always have to fill in the 'have you ever been known by another name' on forms... So next year, when its not childcare and centrelink crap, I'll be enrolling him in prep under the name I want him to have, which is legal. So there's ways around our mistakes!

Yep i have! I had ds5 name all picked out but when i was about 26 weeks along, Dh's cousin passed away. He was very close with him, more like a brother than a cousin, so that was that, we named ds5 after his cousin. I've never really liked the name but it suits him, he did get an awesome middle name tho so i evened it out a bit

Oh Pesca... what a rat... I hope as this 'man' fades into the background of your life that this name will remind you most strongly of your beautiful little son, who you fought for and who will always be devoted to you, and your huge heart.

So sorry to hear that, Pesca. Stupid question but have you already posted the birth cert paperwork?
