I'm gay so I've wondered what most straight couples would do (or anyone gay out there that wouldn't mind sharing their opinions?)

  • We could have two children. One inherits, say, my name and the other inherits hers.

  • If I had a child and I chose to keep my name (which, let's be real, there's like a 50% chance I will), said child would take my husband's name. MY last name is in no danger of dying out. There are a plethora of Mr. M's out there to carry on my last name. My guy, on the other hand, is the only male in his family aside from his father, with his last name.

  • I'd like to take the partners last name as well as let our child take the same name
    i really don't like my last name at all it's a German name that has horrible meaning :(
    now i know why people never cared for my paternal Grand-dad long story.

  • It depends. If her last name is seriously good, I would like the child to have it. In particular, I like German and Russian last names a lot.

  • I would likely have changed my name to my partner's. However, in the case that I didn't, then my child would have my surname hyphenated with my partner's (though I wouldn't really want that because his name is already double-barrelled and my child doesn't really need three surnames).

  • Tough one!!! I have this fear because I'm an only child, that I don't want the family name to die with me! But then... I want to take my husbands name and our children have the same name... but my family name should live on... ahh i don't know

  • I used to think about this extensively. Ideally, I would keep my last name and any children I might have would have my partner's last name with my last name as their middle name.

  • My child would take my husband's family name of course. :)
