Hi all, This may be an odd question, but something I want to do.. U know how americans & even north indians have family names. As a tamilian I dont have any family name. I use my father's first name as my last name. My husband's name is much longer, I want our kid to have a small first name and small last name... So if I want to create a family name for ourselves starting from my kid, how do I do that? In USA is it a rule that kid's last name should be dad's name or can I put a new family name as my kid's last name? Is there anyway I can do this? Any suggestions please..
