…is important to me. My brothers and sisters all have daughters. My Son is the only male in my generation. I hope nothing ever changes that. I’ve been reading other Spaces and there was many debates about changing kids last names. I know there are good reason for doing it but there are many who seek to make that change for spiteful reasons.
On the other hand, many reasons exist to keep the family name of the bio father. In case of an untimely death, it is important for any Gov benefits. You may have hard times and need medical insurance & financial assistance for his children. The Gov won’t seek you out or advertise these benefits.
I do not know much about my family history but my last name is important to me…tom g
How important is it to you?
