Baby insists on Dad's name

Rachel Asked:

My daughters baby is due in a few weeks time. She's 18; the father, who left her four weeks ago is 17.

We want to know if she can give the baby his last name with out him.

Dear Rachel
You'll need to ask at the register office, it's a matter of local law.

But, whether you can or not, is nothing to do with making him provide for the child. That's quite separate; so if that's your daughter's reason for wanting to label the baby with a quitter's name, she's going to be disappointed.

She should try to imagine what the baby might want in a few years time - it's the baby who must live with her decision.
