On this Mother's Day let me Salute the newborns who had BOTH a Mother and a Father who were in a committed marriage relationship on the day of their birth! (Not very many......)

I would suggest dropping all the ridiculous apostrophe's and the dopey multi-multi-syllable names in the best interests of your kids' futures, though!! Just a suggestion!! Go for two syllables MAXIMUM and see if your kid won't make 20 points higher on their tests all the way through school!?!? Just try it and see!!!

i don't understand why the baby is given the fathers last name when the parents are not married! We all know that, chances are, the child will be with the mother and the father will be out of the equation in a few months. that way the mother will have the same last name as the kid when the schools start calling home. saves alot of confusion
