  • No, she got her name for a reason. We changed it 3 times before she was born but I wouldn't change it now.

  • Never, my childrens names all have some familial meaning behind them.

  • Not their first or middle names, no. But I am hoping that in a few years, their step-father will be able to adopt them & I would change their last names at that point if they were ok with it.

  • I wouldn't now that they have had them for 20, 17, and 15
    But I originally wanted to name my 17 y/o daughter after my mother and wish I had put my foot down on that.
    I also originally wanted to name my 15 y/o daughter after mine and my husband's dearest grandmothers and now wish I had put my foot down on that, too.

    My 20 y/o daughter gave her daughter (my granddaughter) a hyphenated first name (Fae-Lee), which is sweet, but I detect troubles ahead for her when she goes to school and such. I wish she had named her Fayleigh as it is a one-worded name and looks more feminine. Ah well, she is her daughter so it was her choice.

  • I would change my son's last name. I love his name Zane Andrew. But Loreto-Mendez is so long and confusing that I totally regret giving him both our last names together. My boyfriend and I discussed it and we agreed he should have only Mendez. That's my bf's name. We accidentally messed up and did it backwards. It shouldve been Mendez-Loreto dad then mom. I didnt know that lol. So with the new baby its gonna be Mendez only. And we will change Zane's last name to just Mendez and drop my last name Loreto someday. Who knows when that will be though.
