My surname is Smallwood... DP's is Lockwood. We have decided on William (Billy) and would like him to have both our surnames. However, is Smallwood-Lockwood awful? confused if so, I will push for my surname - as we are not married.

Thank you!

I think it's a bit much.

Why not give baby surname Wood?

It's fine but if I were you, I'd get the thread pulled. You've just given your son's full name.

Good luck for the birth and enjoy your gorgeous baby!

Smallwood-Lockwood is horrendous, sorry. Also, as a teacher, I can't help but point out the name Willy Smallwood is not going to help the self-esteem of any child once the teasing starts!!!

I will get it pulled... Thanks, but he isn't here yet!

He will be known as Billy - I doubt he will even know he's a William, until a bit older.

I don't see the point in having just Wood, as it means nothing to either of us - we would all have different surnames. I also don't like names that have alliteration. It doesn't matter, if it's not possible, I will end up pushing for it!

Pushing for Smallwood, I mean!

Locksmall? Smallock? Actually, maybe not the second one!

I'd go middle name Locke, surname Smallwood.
Are you planning on getting married and if so will you keep your surname?
I agree that you should give ur DC your surname if unmarried (I didn't and regret it)
But once you're married would you change DCs name? Have to take it all into consideration.

But agree with PO that Smallwood-Lockwood is waaaaaay too much

Smallwood-Lockwood no.

You need to be more creative-

GeorgeTheThird Tue 27-Dec-16 18:00:43

No. What a terrible mouthful. Would you like it?

Blacksox Tue 27-Dec-16 18:01:38

No. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 27-Dec-16 18:29:24

OP, go for Smallwood, the full title is too much. 😀

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 27-Dec-16 18:29:57

P.S. Billy is a great name !

IAmNotTheOneWhoKnocks Tue 27-Dec-16 18:35:00

I don't see the problem tbh.

Hellooooitsme Tue 27-Dec-16 18:38:26

The names are so similar, just pick one.

smEGGnogg Tue 27-Dec-16 18:45:24

Lock-Smallwood or Small-Lockwood would be fine.

Lockwood-Smallwood is too much.

PleaseDoNotTagMe Tue 27-Dec-16 18:46:48

I would have Wood.

tootiredforthis16 Tue 27-Dec-16 18:48:40

I don't see a problem with it.

Get married and take your husband's surname, or he take yours.

DollyPlastic Tue 27-Dec-16 18:51:32

No. You really can't.

What about Billy Lock Smallwood?

(Personally I'd be happy to lose the small wood as the one I know played rugby at quite a high level and was constantly teased for it. Jokes from the other lads about small willies)

TheHiphopopotamus Tue 27-Dec-16 18:53:33

William is great but Smallwood-Lockwood is terrible. Please don't inflict that surname on your child.

You need to decide on one of them and go with it.

PotteringAlong Tue 27-Dec-16 18:55:07

Do not call him William if you go with Smallwood - the tiny penis jokes are going to be never ending once he hits teenage years!

Scribblegirl Tue 27-Dec-16 18:56:19

I actually would go with William Locksmall!
