It’s obvious children bear their family name as their surname and this is also practised in many cultures around the world.
A Nigerian lady has revealed that she would never allow her kids to bear the name of someone they don’t know and never met.
She further said names go a long way in the lives of people as she believes it reflects in traits on daily basis.
She disclosed that her kids would bear the name of their father (her husband) or the name of their father’s father whom they know or could trace what life he lived.
In her words she said;
I will not let my kids bear their father’s family name. My children will not bear the name of a man I don’t know the kind of life he lived. If he is evil, good, bad etc. Name is strong, the name we bear affects our life and I’m never going to take that risk with my children.
God willing I marry a man whose father is alive and he happens to be a good man we will join his name and my husband’s name as our children’s surname but most likely, my children will bear my husband’s name. They should answer their father’s name so that when something bites, we will know where it’s coming from.
