BD and I broke up and I am not going to get back together with him..I'm not going to go into detail. Anywho..Our son Logan has his last name...and he knows his full names...if you ask him his name he'll proudly tell you "Logan Gallaway!!"...so here's my problem..now I don't really want to give this baby BD's last name..but how can I give this baby my last name but have my other son have their fathers last name? I've considered changing Logan's last name but I don't know how difficult that would be to do and seeing how he already knows his last name how do you explain to a 3 year old that his names is now something different? I just do not know what to do..

Unless he is going to be absent from the children's lives from now on, I don't see why they can't share his last name.

Just my opinion..



But, if they are blood relatives and siblings, they should share last names.

I'd give the baby it's father's last name. Even if you aren't together it's still your babies father. As for changing your son's last name, here both parents have to agree to it, do you think he would?

I would give the 2nd child the same last name since they have the same father, do you not think the faster is going to be in his children's lives now?

Quoting Blythe.:" Just give them different last names. "


This.
My DD1 will have a different name from DD2 until we change it. Save yourself the headache from having to change both unless you make LO2's BD last name as well.
Just tell LO he's going to have mommy's last name. No need to go into detail with a 3 year old.

I had a really rocky relationship with my BD and i didn't want to give our daughter his last name even though our son had his last name. But I did it. And I regret it more than anything.

Hyphenate it. Thats what I did with my 2nd son. My oldest has my last name and my newb is my last name-bd last name but will go mainly by my last name.
