It is more popular in the US, but this adorable baby naming idea is gaining traction here too.
Naming your little one after your own surname is now more popular than ever, as more and more millennial mums are choosing to name their little one after their own family name.
It is not a new concept but it is a very sweet nod to your past. It helps that surnames are SERIOUSLY cool as first names at the moment. A little girl called Quinn? A son named Smith? Adorable.
As more women are choosing to keep their OWN last name after marriage, this makes sense. It means if you choose to use your married name as your children's surname - you can retain your moniker, and it will always be part of their lives.
Author of "The Baby Name Wizard", Laura Wattenberg told the Chicago Tribune, that it is getting increasingly popular:
"Whether or not the parents change their names at marriage, there's a feeling that you want both families to be represented equally in the kids' names."
Obviously, this could only work once, so you will have to be more inventive with subsequent children.
What do you think of this new trend? What would your little one be called?
