I’m in the process of coming up with a new name for myself and my daughter. Of course you don’t need to have the same surname to be the parent of your child – but it is understandably something you might want to share, particularly when it comes to them being at school, or when travelling when they are young and having to prove you are their parent! It is possible to change a child’s name as well, but you need the other parent’s permission up to a certain age. I know this may not be relevant to the original poster – but may be for anyone else reading 😉 N
