When my ex and I divorced I didn't take my maiden name back because of my kids. I am 28 weeks pregnant and I haven't heard from this bd since I told him. I found out that I am having a boy. My ex has my oldest to keep his family name going but my maiden name will die out. One of my brothers has no kids, the other has 2 but neither have his last name. So I was thinking to put my maiden name for this baby's last name. Does anyone know if I can do that? I figured I would probably contact someone to find out for sure. I just don't want this baby to have my ex's last name since he isn't the father.
