I am in a simular dilema. I was married before and my son still has his father’s last name, while I went back to my maiden name (never liked my old married one in the first place). My son does NOT like his father and is always saying how he wants to change his last name to match mine (maiden), he even uses it when he’s here (we have joint custody). My fiance’s name starts with the same letter and I like it, however, I feel as though I might want to keep my maiden name if my son does, indeed, want to switch names when he’s 18. Or, I could hyphenate my maiden and new married one. It’s a possibility that my son would just want to take my fiance’s last name. To confuse things even further, my fiance’s last name was given to him after he was legally adopted by his step-father, LOL Confusing, I know. I still am pondering the best course of action. Thank God I have a year before I really have to decide!
