Hi OP, I feel for you it must be a difficult position to be in. If I was not married and he had already broken an engagement previously, I would give the baby my last name. There is nothing to stop you naming him as the father on the birth certificate but naming the baby with your last name. If you were married I think it's completely different. It would be very difficult for me to give the baby the dad's name - if it doesn't work out in the long run, they will always have that name. If it all does work out, it is actually not difficult to change the name legally, it is a simple form.

I told him that the baby will automatically have my last name, due to my family and my own beliefs , he agreed . But his mum said he can " Change it " .. Which is sneaky lol and I'm so sure that my family wouldn't be happy at all , neither would I , if that was to happen lol
DP re-assuring me that we "will " be married just not now, but I still have not changed my mind . His family says I'm biased lol but I guess , it's what I believe in , and I'm sticking with that .

I didn't think of the birth certificate lol of course I would 100% put him on the birth certificate , and I'm with you on that one . Of it doesn't work out and he leaves us , it would remain .. But if it does then you're right it should be simple .
No ring , no last name , that's how I was raised . Guess there are more women that have the same say when It comes to last names thank you

Ive also always said if Im not married the baby would have my last name.
A womans sacrifice is her body in making the baby, a mans is devoting himself to her and the child through marriage (if that is what the mother wants).
He has to give something too, not just sperm.
I have a hyphenated last name and Ive always hated it.
