Have you ever had your child's name changed or wanted to?

I want to change my son's name because he is named after his dad. It seems as though I need the dad's permission or have to prove him as unfit. 1) Has anyone had any luck changing their child's name without the father? 2) Are names important to you?

  • how old is this child, what does he think about it?
    if you are just wanting to change it because you no longer like the dad I think you are being childish.
    but to answer you question, I have not done so, by my baby brother's first name was william after my dad, when even my dad didn't like the idea. I told my mom that my brother didn't look like a william or bill so I always used his middle name.
    it stuck. :)

  • I changed my daughter's last name to my maiden name when I had my ex-husband's parental rights revoked.
