So here is the problem I'm thirteen weeks pregnant, and I have a problem.
My last name is Sladek, and my ex boyfriend (friend/babys daddy) has two last names :O
I was thinking about names and then it hit us our baby is going to have a really long name like

"Billy Bob Sladek-Kelly-Champagne" - (example)

I'm not really interested in it having three last names, but I want my ex to feel like the dad, which he is.

I'm so confused, what would you do?
Plus he really wants to pick names now, anyone have any idea's.
I want her, or his name to be pretty unique just incase it has three last names :O

Wow! Three last names is HUGE! lo. I was in the same delima as yourself. go with your gut. if your uncomfortable with giving your child 3 last names, go for it. lol. but since your not married, and names can always be changed (last names) my lil due i didnt wanna name 'em keegan lantz josiah golden-wilbanks. lol. so i went with the two first names and only my own last name (i wasnt married when i had him) so, idk. just somthin' to think about really. your boyfriend/baby's father will feel like a father.

a monther becomes a mother when she becomes pregnant, and father becomes a DAD when he sse's his baby!

here is my suggestion...no middle name if you do decide on the three last names. or if you use only one of the father's last names...no offense to the mother but traditionally(and in the hispanic culture as well) the fathers last name gets carried on which would mean you would put your last name then HIS fathers last name.

One more thing, if you have a long last name a shorter first name flows better or a shorter last name a longer first name works.

Christopher Benjamin King rather than Christopher Benjamin Christenson....
or
Eric Christenson rather than Eric King....

Just my opinion....

Thanks for the help guys, I think I'll just tell everyone the baby is only getting one of his last names, because yeah, me and him aren't married, and the baby isn't going to take his two last names and leave mine out.. I dont think so lol. Thats true to that people somewhere might not like the name, but they wouldn't really matter.

I really think you should decide what you want, im kind of in the same boat i want my boyfriend to feel appart of the kids name but at the same time i dont want him/her have two last names. three would be out of the question for me. i would use one of his and one yours for the last name then maybe base the middle name of of the other last name.. hope this helps a little :)

You wont be in trouble. how i went about naming my kiddo is i just picked what i liked and gave him my last name because the dad and i arent together. and he has pretty much bailed so i just did whatever I wanted to with the name. when you name your kid. dont think about whose feelings it will hurt or anything like that. someone somewhere isnt going to like what you named your kid. it is always like that. and about the teasing thing... kids are going to get teased. i got teased for having a boy's name. even though its alexandra.. lol kids are cruel. but yours will be ok with whatever you decide:)

Yeah I was thinking that too, but I didn't want his dad or mom, getting upset because we decided to only use one. These are the times where I wish we were married or something, so that the baby had a short name. I don't want anyone teasing the child, or anyone mad at the name picking lol. So I think im in trouble..

Wow, three last names is long.... Maybe you could just use on of his and yours. just a thought... as for names... I would suggest going to google and typing in unique names. you still have a long way to go. Best of luck though. :)
