Daddy’s vs. Last name vs. Or not

My fiancé and I had been together for 4 years and have a sweet 3 y/o girl named Cambrie Grace Ross. I am currently 30 weeks pregnant with a boy and a few weeks ago my fiancé and I broke up. He is moving 3 hrs away. Should this baby have his last name of Ross too, or my last name? I’m young (27) so sure at some point I’ll date again, get married and maybe have more kids. So future kids would have even a different last name. I’m so torn of what to do. This baby’s name is Ethan Alexander.

The Top Baby Name is...



Last Name


Or Not

Thanks I’m leaning towards that even though his dad won’t really be involved. Poster

If he is involved in your daughter’s life, why would he not be involved in this child’s life? Just because the two of you are not together doesn’t mean that it does anything to the bond between a child and their father.

Keep your name not his. I regret giving my daughter her father’s surname for the same reason.

He’s moving 3 hours away so really won’t see either kid much. Poster

His name. My exhusband and I were divorcing when we found out we were having a second son and my ex said the last name was up to me I chose his last name to be easier on my boys so they don’t have to explain why they don’t have the same last name but have the same father

Give him your last name. He’s as much your son as his, and at least you love him.

It doesn’t matter how much he see’s them as long as he is in their lives and makes attempts to see them and call them and be a father. I personally would not feel that I would have the right to do that if the father has not decided to be out of their lives but you must use your best judgment because we do not know the whole story but I just hope that you aren’t doing this for selfish reasons to spite him.

Whatever you do, I’d try to get all three of your last names (yours and the two kids) the same. It’s much easier for anything bureaucratic (school registration, passports, driver licensing).

He’s leaving three hours away at 30 weeks gestation. I’m pretty sure he’s the selfish one.

Since your daughter already has his last name, I’d use it for this baby too. Otherwise I’d have said to give him your last name.

Ya, I’d say change your daughter’s last name to yours as well. What a pig!

Not out of spite. He says he doesn’t care which last name he has. We are cordial but probably never get back together. Poster

Well, like I said, we don’t know the whole story. Have you considered talking to your family about this? These are the opinions that you should really take.

Take your last name, the initials of Ethan Alexander Ross spell EAR. I couldn’t help but notice.
