So I'm expecting my first baby on July 31st and my boyfriend and I couldn't be happier. Originally, we had decided that our little girl would have my last name, and if it were a boy, it would have his. Well it turns out wee are having a beautiful little girl, but today he asked if she could have his last name. My mom and dad were married when I was born, but got divorced about a year later. I never had his last name and that has helped keep my mom and I close. My biggest problem with our little lily having his last name is that we aren't married. I feel we should have the same last name whether its mine or his. But I also realize that she has more of a tie to me because I'm the one carrying her. This is a huge decision. Any advice?
