Not really a relationship question per say, but sort of.
I'm seriously considering changing my last name. I ignorantly (and under emotional abuse) gave my daughter her father's last name. He has since dropped off the face of the earth in concerns to seeing my daughter but refuses to sign paperwork so that i can give her my last name.
ive never been a fan of my last name, his last name is Davis. Extremely common, and my last name already starts with D so i would have the same initals. I feel miserable everytime i have to see or sign something that reflects the difference in her name and my name. not because she has his name, but because our names arn't the same. i feel like a fraud and like i have to defend the fact that she's my daughter.
so since i can't change her last name, why not change mine?

Changing your last name is a pain in the butt, but doable. It will make a lot of things easier if you match. All it takes is some legal forms you can do yourself and a short court appearance. Oh, and there's a fee, of course!
