New baby, what to do about last name?
My spouse and myself are not married, and I'm not 100% sure we will get married. We have a baby on the way and have had some awkward questions from people about what her last name is going to be.
My spouse already has an 8 year old son who is with us half time that has his father's last name.
I don't know if I want my baby to have a different last name than me, and my spouse is okay with whatever I decide. Does it make sense to give her my last name, or a hyphenated last name, and then just change mine and the baby's last names if we wind up getting married? Is it selfish of me to want her to share my last name and not the last name of her half brother?
