If you're in a relationship with a partner and you had (or plan to have) your children by having one or both of you get pregnant, did you (or do you plan to) change your names so that both partners have the same last name? Use the last name of the partner who birthed the baby? Use the last name of the partner who did not birth the baby? Hyphenate? Make up an entirely different last name? Something else?
If you knew from the beginning that you might switch which partner got pregnant for future children, how did that impact your decision?
My situation: I'm pregnant, and my wife and I have different last names. We definitely want to use my wife's last name as part (or all) of this child's last name, but we are also considering hyphenating or having me change my last name so we all share my wife's last name. We want all our children to have the same last name. I slightly prefer the option of having this child have just my wife's last name and having me keep my own last name. But since we think my wife will carry child #2, we wonder if having child #2 have both biological and last name connections only to my wife will make things more complicated. I'm curious to hear what other people have done!
