Noooo I'm not asking you to post your last name!

Just wondering if your LO took their fathers last name, your last name, or a hyphenated combo? How did you come to your decision?

Hyphenated. I brought up the idea -- it was important to me that my child have my name too. DH chose the order (mine first, simply because it flows better).And this little one will grow to hate us because computer systems can't cope with a hyphen, people can't get it right over the phone and when learning to spell her name in school she'll be writing off the page (not really, DH's name is short). I still stand by it though, it was important for me, and I think she'll grow to appreciate why eventually. (Just before she gives thanks as she takes her husbands simpler last name.)

She has our last name. It was a struggle for me to decide to take DH's name when we married, but I did knowing that I wanted us to have the same name as a family when we had kids.

We all have DH's.

It would actually be simpler just to have kept my own for a variety of reasons, and in that case, the kids would take DH's last name.

We both have DHs last name, but she has the same middle name as me. Her, my mother, my cousin, my aunt and I all have the same middle name. That way she got something from my side in her name.

DH's. FIL says it's pronounced Michelle but DH pronounces it Michael. Hence the trouble in naming LO, lol.

We all have DH's last name but she has my middle name which is a very special family name on my moms side of the family so I like that

LO has DH's last name, I kept my last name after we got married, One day i'll make the switch. Especially since I was given the talk about how it could turn into a problem when I try to fly internationally with Julius by myself, I have to get a notarized permission slip from DH and bring a copy of J's birth certificate.

We are not married yet. ODD has my last name because at the time our relationship and future was really uncertain. I felt like if I was raising a child on my own, I would rather her have my name. Plus, if I married someone else someday, I didn't want her to feel different having a different name as everyone else in the family. I would hyphenate my name then, so she still felt "included".

The baby's last name is hyphenated, Mine-His. We came to this decision because 1. We're engaged, and now know we'll be getting married, so it was ok IMO for her to have his. (I know this sounds selfish, but I had strong feelings on this.) and 2. because ODD's current last name has been a part of her for so long that we didn't want to switch it up and "take it away" from her. We always knew we would legally change her last name once we got married, but now we will just change it to the hyphenated name.

I will hyphenate mine when we get married as well.

My name is hyphenated. This is because DD1 (15 years old) is actually not my husband's biological child. I was married very young and had a baby and at the time me and DD1 took his name. We divorced and years later I met my now DH. We had a son (7 years old) and when he was born I decided to hyphenate so I could have a part of DD1's name and my DH and son's. Sophia of course has DH's name too.
