My FIL is pissed that my DH took my last name. We have been married for 3 years but it wasn't until Friday when our son was born that he found this out.

My husband wouldn't go for that, so I get it.  But, if you and your husband agree to it...FIL might as well unbunch is panties over something that is none of his business.

My friend's Dh did the same thing and his family disowned him for it. If my Ds wants to do that when he gets married, it is his choice.

Does he have a rare last name that he fears will die out?

My DH couldn't wait to change his name. They are the only 2 in the area with the last name and my FIL wrecked it.

No his other son and grandson have his last name but they don't live around here.

I wish I could have convinced my dh to make up a new last name with me. He didn't want me keeping my last name from a previous marriage and I don't like his dad or family and don't want to bear their name. I wanted us to just figure out a new last name entirely and start it for our own family. He has his last name tattooed in giant letters across his upper back though so he wouldn't go for it :/ I'm pregnant with our first kid now and I'm actually sad that our baby will have that last name.
