For The Men in the house: If you want to give your child a surname, whose name will you give to your child? Yours? Your dad's? Your grandfather's? Your great-grandfather's? Etc. Which is appropriate and why? I really need answers. Think am well before answering biko.

There's no hard and fast rule to that. As for me, They'll bear mine.

That will be kinda complicated especially when traveling overseas with your kids with different surnames....They might start asking some silly questions..

To avoid complications, it is always wise to give your kids whatever surname you are bearing..

Someone told me same thing. But the birth certificate does bear the names of the parents, so in my opinion there shouldn't be any complications at all.
Re: Whose Name Should Your Child Bear As Surname? by Prettychiz4real(f): 2:53pm On Dec 27, 2016
Lol. Frankly speaking, I'm bothered about how old the surname is.

I guess you have no idea how some people work in their various offices especially in public offices just to frustrate others dear...But if you are certain that there's no issues, I say Amen to that.... but I know how certain things that shouldn't be an issue became a big one...causing you to start making phone calls here and there, running around their office as if you were working with them just to iron out the issues...to avoid that kinda frustration, it is always cool to do the normal thing....

All of the above, different surnames for each child of mine depending on my mood at the time of their birth.
