What if your child wanted to adopt a new surname and have his fiance take on that entirely new name?


How would you feel? The family?

    I think creating a new surname from both partners surnames would be better. It still retains the parts of the ancestry within and wouldn't feel like an outright rejection of "what was passed onto you", so to speak.

    Welcome back Brad! You've been away for some time.

    I guess I was thinking that the parents may feel rejected and could as a reaction, reject the children and grandchildren (yet to come) from that "unexpcted new lineage".
