Its become law in some states that the child has to have the mothers last name. A sperm donor doesn't get a namesake!
I was raised as the only one in my family with a different last name; my mom remarried also. One day they called me by my step-father's last name over the school PA. It was so awkward and didn't fit. I love my last name.

He's going to be there for delivery and a few days after the surgery to help me when my mother can't. On the one hand, I want all my kids to have the same last name. On the other hand, they're entitled to his. He says it's up to me.
