If you were single when you gave birth

Did you give the father any choice in the child's name? I was all set to go with the name we chose together and then he was a no show when she was born so I went with my original choice.

I might be petty, but I see nothing wrong with it. :)

Sure, you already know the answer to your own question. You made a decision, what are you going to change the name if we decide you are being petty??

i was seperated when i gave birth to my middle dd....since we were technically still married he had rights. but thats the only day hes ever seen her...shes now 2.5yrs.

oh i missed the "name" part lol...i still gave her the name we picked because i couldnt think of any other name.. but i wish i would've changed her first name.

I named him.  He wasn't around.  My son doesn't even have his father's last name, nor is his father listed on the birth certificate.

No. I am asking if mothers who were single when the child was born gave the father a choice in the name!

Originally I had planned too. But he was being an ass that last trimester and rarely ever called. When I called to tell him I was in labor he told me he had other plans. I took this as an omen into his involvement in her life and gave her the name I loved instead of the one I was okay with. Turns out I was right. He never saw her after she was 5 months old.

My dd father got no say. My husband asked for a paternity test for our youngest son and said he would sign over his rights to him. I went against our choice together and went with the name I wanted.
