Different last name to my new born

Hi All,

We are expecting a baby in next week and would like her to give her my husband’s middle name as last name,as the baby will be a US citizen and we are Indians,we wanted to confirm if last name can be given by choice.

Is it going to affect the baby’s future in anyway or will the baby face any trouble because of this name?

PLease reply If anyone has any update or information on this.

Thank you for taking time to read this post.

Appreciate your responses.

You can choose the last name for newborn. Make sure your names are exactly as listed on identification documents so that relationship is established. Name changes in the US are possible at birth and at the US citizen swearing in ceremony. Your question is timely and fits the first category. Congrats on the new arrival!!

Best wishes
