My partner and I are thinking about coming up with an entirely new last name for our family — one that isn’t attached to either family in any way.
I only have one reservation: names often have a long history attached, and it’s likely we’d want to share this history with our future kids.
For families who have created a family name: what do you do when your children ask you about your family name’s history? — Maggie
Have you and your partner created a family name? How did/will you explain the name to your kids?
