Either the bio fathers or my own. This guys is not the father, and if he wants to adopt and the bio father wants to give up parental rights, then he can give the baby his name. It is not his kid just cause you get married.

Either your last name or biodad's last name. New boyfriend has no legal rights and shouldn't be anywhere on the birth certificate.



I'm with Jodi. Whatever last name your first child has would probably simplify things for your kids somewhat.

To add to what 'Little Miss' said.... IF there comes a point where biodad gives up his legal rights and your boyfriend/soon to be husband adopts your other kids... you can get the birth certificates changed at that time. I know a woman who just went through that with her two older kids and her new husband. Considering that you haven't even yet given birth to the child though.... I think it may be a bit premature to be thinking like that. Who knows how biodad may or may not step up after a bit of time has passed....

AH, ok, you have another child. Whose name does the 3 year old have? The baby should definitely NOT have your boyfriend's name because it isn't his child. I was going to suggest you give the baby your last name. But if you end up having another baby with your boyfriend, that will mean 3 different surnames amongst your children, and take it from one who knows, that's confusing, especially when you have to travel anywhere with them, LOL. I'm going with giving the baby the same surname as its older sibling.

If the babies father is not your soon to be husband than you have two choices bio dads last name or a hyphenated version of your new name and bio dads name.

So you divorced the biological father? What does he have to say about the name?
