I think if you're together with the baby's dad then the baby should have his last name. Unless the father had nothing to do or help with the baby. The last name is not just a name but its very a prideful thing. My two children have both last names, I chose to have them hyphenated.


My oldest has my maiden name, but my other two have my husband's last name. We are also very traditionalistic.
