DP's and I's first baby together. WWYD WRT the surname?

originalmavis Thu 02-Feb-17 17:13:07

Choose just one!

KlingybunFistelvase Thu 02-Feb-17 17:14:32

Wight maybe?

FannyWisdom Thu 02-Feb-17 17:14:49

No you can't.

ErrolTheDragon Thu 02-Feb-17 17:15:06

Oh dear. Yeah, I think you'd better just use yours.

Tanaqui Thu 02-Feb-17 17:16:35

Wight, Whitnight, or possibly even Whytenight would be better!

BookNut Thu 02-Feb-17 17:18:50

Whight maybe as a compromise?

AllTheLight Thu 02-Feb-17 17:22:40

No you can't!! Go with just yours.

ErrolTheDragon Thu 02-Feb-17 17:23:55

'Wight' nowadays seems to be used for some sort of ghost or undead thing - not sure that'd be a good idea.

neonrainbow Thu 02-Feb-17 17:23:58

No of course you can't.

strawberrypenguin Thu 02-Feb-17 17:24:48

Umm not really. White Knight if you must the other way round just looks like you've tried to hide it badly.
I like the idea of a mash up of your names though - you could all change to it then

DesolateWaist Thu 02-Feb-17 17:26:04

Call the child something like Galahad, or Lancelot and it'll be fine.
Just style it out.

EweAreHere Thu 02-Feb-17 17:27:43

Style it out. grin

Just use your last name. It's your baby, no reason why you shouldn't.

FannyWisdom Thu 02-Feb-17 17:30:23

White Knight of the ....

duvetttpol Thu 02-Feb-17 17:30:49

It's also DP's baby!

Not keen on the idea of a mashup. I guess I'll rethink

Jooni Thu 02-Feb-17 17:50:22

Haha Desolate!

OP, no I'm afraid you can't really. Pick one and use the other as a middle perhaps? Or is there another family surname on either side which could be double-barrelled less... amusingly? grin

Isadora2007 Thu 02-Feb-17 17:51:33

Awwww. Kind of cute. A wee baby white knight. Loving the idea of going with a Camelot theme...

DesolateWaist Thu 02-Feb-17 18:13:25

Oh come on. Guinevere White Knight.
She would be so damn cool.

Kelsey28 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:23:03

I would just use his name.

Bluntness100 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:33:02

No, don't do it, it's like calling your child Burger King.

sm40 Thu 02-Feb-17 18:37:00

Our old tumble dryer was by a company called white night! I immediately thought of that!

ExpectoPatronummmm Thu 02-Feb-17 18:38:33

Double barrel surnames are ridiculous and un needed.
I'm not married and my kids have taken my OHs surname. Doesn't mean anything that my surname wasn't used.

duvetttpol Thu 02-Feb-17 18:39:16

Why would you just use his name?

I like my surname lmao and really want to keep it.

KlingybunFistelvase Thu 02-Feb-17 18:42:42

How about your mum's maiden name (if it's different to yours) double barrelled with your dps?

EduCated Thu 02-Feb-17 18:45:11

Or DP's mums maiden name and OP's name?

Unfortunately it is the sort of combination that will bring a lifetime of comments!
