  1. me and my boyfriend dont know what to name our baby ! we have lkoeod at names but we cant really agree on one. everyone keeps asking what the babys name is going to be but if i dont know whaty its going to be how can i answer.its not supposed to be that difficult to just choose a name but we dont want to name our baby some random name. i want to put both of our last name on the baby but its probably going to be really long and sound kind of weird but i really want to put the babys father last name because its a tradition in my culture the babys father last name goes before the moms. for legal reasons and because the father is proud to call the baby his son or daughter. i thought i had to name the baby after his dad but it looks like it doesnt matter legallly and that was just my only doubt.itll probably hopefuly be alot easier now to find a name and to find what last name we will give the baby the moms or the dads.
