My boyfriend's last name is Muhammad. His dad decided that he wanted to up and switch religions and his first and last name and wanted his son to have an Islamic name. My boyfriend's dad then switched to another religion before he died. So my boyfriend is stuck with a Muslim name that I don't want to name our unborn son. Am I wrong to not like his name? I mean he's not muslim and why would I want to give our son a name that has no family meaning? Shouldn't I give him his paternal grandfather's legal name? I'm stuck here.Answer Question

Legally you can name your son anything you want. I don't like the sound of my husbands last name and I have many documents in my maiden name because my maiden name has a cultural significance to me. Our children have his last name and I use his name because I want to have the same name as my children. Honestly it really doesn't matter to me, it really is just a name. In the end though its up to you to decide, your boyfriend has told you he doesn't want to change his name, now you decide if you want to make an issue of this and pick a different name.
