Dwyane Wade says he tattooed his unborn daughter's name on his body "one night in China." The NBA star honored his best friend, LeBron James, by naming his daughter after him.

Dwyane posted an Instagram photo of his shoulder tattoo which spells out his daughter's name "Kaavia Wade". The newborn's full name is Kaavia James Union Wade.

Kaavia was conceived via IVF and born via a surrogate on Nov. 7.

Dwyane, 36, and his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, 46, raise 2 of his 3 sons. He also has a 5-year-old son, Xavier, by a California socialite.

Question: What do you think of Dwyane and Gabby naming their daughter after LeBron?

    That’s weird...

    Question: What do you think of Dwyane and Gabby naming their daughter after LeBron? Not a got damn thing!! Its his f'en business!!

  • oshh16

    i actually like James as a first name for a girl, like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively named their daughter....as far as the wades and lebron, no comment.

  • sunni_daze

    Why does the baby have both parents last name, when the parents are already married to each other. I'm not even getting into the James part...either way their kid.

  • oshh16

    That is what I was thinking why both last names?

  • Coy little wink

    I like it...sounds pretty and looks pretty in writing

  • Coy little wink

    Probably they just wanted to include both...

  • Guest

    We still on these folks. Did we make this big of a deal when Xavier was born? Sheesh!

  • Strappyheels

    Beautiful name! It does look just as lovely written out..

  • sunni_daze

    But when they married they became 1. Gabby Union is now Gabby Wade now. I could see if she they weren't married.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm assuming his other kids names are tatted on him.

  • Harley

    Black fathers are AHHMAZING

  • Coy little wink

    No I think she is union wade...not everyone wants to lose their maiden name

  • Harley

    Many women keep their maiden name. My sister in law did as well

  • Harley

    For real!

  • J2PC

    Royals & elite people tend do that. This is common practice in so many countries outside the US, especially Latin countries.

    This keeps elite surnames alive. In this way it creates a legacy where that child's offspring will refer back to Union as well.

    The child will be able use either surnames going forth in her adult life. That is very smart of them.

  • Coy little wink

    All my friends kept their name...I get that its like what's the point? I have my own identity...

  • hi-liter

    I wasn’t fully aware Gabs was a full 10 years older than Dewayne.

  • J2PC

    It is common around the world especially where to highly successful people are involved. Some will hyphenate it as Union-Wade. They chose to do as the royals & Latinos do which include both surnames.

  • oshh16

    The more you know.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Tattooing a name doesn’t make someone love their child/mother/girlfriend/boyfriend/pet etc any more than someone who has no tattoo. Most baby fathers have their children name tattoo but haven’t seen the child since infancy. This is one of the dumbest trends in black culture. Too old to have this type of mindset. Either way not really any of my concern how you mitigate your body. I am realizing that these celebs are just as addicting to social media as regular community folks.

  • KcoolMuziq

    #TEAMWADE

  • J2PC

    Copycatters, especially folks in the hood, might borrow original names of others like Sade, Kaavia, Aaliyah, but their children will never be those successful people.

    -Kaavia is original & pretty. Way to go Gabby & Dewayne!

  • Dowoop

    Yes, its used as a way to trace lineage.

  • ohdearme

    I knew they were close but I didn't realize they were THAT close, at any rate not my business!

  • Coy little wink

    Very pretty

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Cute.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I'm gone stay away from the name thing cuz last time I said sumptin about somebody name...but good for them I guess. I'm tired of hearing about them tho and this baby they didn't work for. Gabby walking around talmbout she aint bathed in days...bih why? that's just lazy... you ain't did nairn push!! GIRL BYE!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Of course not...The other day when Xavier turned five,was the first time I've seen a pic with him and Wade.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    His kid, his skin, his tats... i don't care and i don't see the harm in it.
    anyway, why is it worthy of criticism when a Black Man does it, but it was 'cute' when David Beckham did it? These racist trolls can't resist injecting race into a post that actually has nothing to do with race.... just lying in wait to take a jab at anything a Black person does and then generalizing their criticism to lambaste the entire race. News flash: We don't care what you think!

  • Nik

    I admit I like it as well.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Kaavia James? James?!?!?!...well ok..their child not mine...Cute!

  • DroneRivers

    If they like it, I love it. Blessings to the family.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Fukk you sir. How many games did you miss 5 years ago? I'm over the attention whoring and placing kids above one another. You didn't have this same energy...you know what? Nvmd. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fe1e1cbc58af5caf4eaabce1160a120abbb048eab51f5175eb3f9c9d5c5ddd93.gif

    and, Nik, i'm not even a fan of Gaby or DWade like that for real. but, i see the b.s. for what it is. they're up in here fonting in 'black face' but their racist font betrays them more than they know.

    Same here. I use that block function like Luke uses The Force.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Every married couple I know uses their maiden and married name

  • Phillybruh

    I dig the first name, unless Wade is terrible with money she won't have to put it on a job application.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Indeed! LOL!

  • CaramelDrop

    You want my like my reply but I’m going to put it out there..................

    Bastard.
    Want legitimate privileges - Don’t be a CUMBUCKET for a check or with another woman man.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not the kid fault and he didnt put on a public show like this and he WASNT MARRIED TO HER when that baby was born. he didnt take nary a day off.

  • bemetoo

    The kid is from Lebron sperm

  • CaramelDrop

    Still the other baby mama problem. That’s what happens when you’re not official and you let a nicca dump in you.
    SHE did that to HER baby. She wanted the check not the legitimacy. Doesn’t absolve DWade but it is what it is.

  • Nik
  • FukkFolks2018

    They didnt sign their marriage cert til months later. So a for show wedding. Not legal at the time of the birth of the "outside baby". Nope. It doesnt absolve HIM. Im tired of women getting the hard end of the stick when in reality everyone is an adult involved. An official what? Gf? Bc in that case her and Gabby were on the same level playing field at that time. You know I subscribe to unless you are married you are single. And my issue on this situation is with him. He didnt have this same energy.

  • CaramelDrop

    “He didn’t put in a public show like this when the other Was born”
    ************************************
    For what? It wasn’t on purpose, she wasn’t his woman, probably wasn’t on board to keep it and DIDNT PAY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS ON INVITRO. This baby is a miracle for them - that baby was a payday for her. This baby even got Aja baby some recognition- maybe Aja should get the baby name tattooed on her to, dammit. PhuckaHo

  • FukkFolks2018

    And Gabby is not a hoe? What makes Gabby not a reformed hoe? From all I ever read she was an industry bicycle. Everyone got a ride. Not just here. Mad places have said that.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Public show as in where the tats of the other kids plural? The ones born during his FIRST MARRIAGE AS WELL

  • sunni_daze

    I understand they do it in certain cultures. But they not Royal or Elite they just rich americans, that public sweats have raised up

  • CaramelDrop

    So. He married Gabby without a baby or anything else to MAKE HIM marry her. If the heaux and her baby were all y’all wish they were then he should’ve at least CLAIMED her as his woman. But he DIDNT claim either until this beautiful baby came to Gabby and DWade’s Union. Again - want a legitimate baby then spread your legs for YOUR MAN.

  • sunni_daze

    Do the kids have her maiden name or her married name?

  • FukkFolks2018

    But he DIDNT claim either until this beautiful baby
    ^^^^^^^^
    He been photo'd with Xavier before this baby.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I heard they mixed LeBron's sperm with Dwayne's sperm to create super sperm. I don't know how true that is.

  • sunni_daze

    I get that. But that doesn't apply to the child, the child's maiden name will be Wade and not just that, this child has siblings and they all have the name Wade, even the side baby and nephew. It just doesn't look unified to me.

  • Phillybruh

    lol

  • FukkFolks2018
  • Alextra Ballard

    CCCCDDDFFFUUU....No Ma'am!

  • CaramelDrop

    That don’t count - if it did folks wouldn’t be salty about that girl baby not getting he same recognition in the Wade family.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Stooppppp!

  • Alextra Ballard

    How do yew mix sperm?

  • FukkFolks2018

    I want the same energy for each and every kid born on this planet. Were over 80% of the folks on this blog parents married or in perfect circumstances when they came about? Lets live in the real world here. If this were YOU or your fam would YOU have the same energy? That gives a dad the right to not ack. a kid bc of the circumstance a kid was born under? Is that what you are telling me right now?

  • SpiceGirl

    My friendco worker's daughter has BOTH her parents last names as her....never understood why tho....(being hyphenated)

  • CaramelDrop

    Furthermore, Gabby might be a heaux. If so, lesser heaux need to take note.
    Gabby not only got the nicca to marry her, but this nicca:
    *paid for her to have another woman carried for her baby
    * slid her last name into the babies name
    * got him tatting her baby name on him
    *gladly showing the world Gabby baby
    *keeping break babies on the peripheral of their family

    Gabby is a different kinda heaux - One that’s WINNING

  • GAPeach

    The babies last name is not hyphenated, her last name is Wade. She basically has 2 middle names.

  • Harley

    Why do you care? I don’t see Xavier’s mom complaining. The circumstances were different. So he can place his energy wherever he wants. Gabby had a hard time getting pregnant which was emotional for both and this is his first girl.. let them live

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Aight nah Sandra!!! Don't start with the foolishness...super sperm??? really??

  • Y me?

    That seems like it would only make sense if it was a boy baby. What good does it do for a woman to have lebron's 7 foot tall thinning hair but super talented basketball skills DNA? Unless they want her to be like lisa leslie which wud be odd

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Very carefully.

  • Harley

    ????????

  • Harley

    He has tats of his other kids so ?????

  • FukkFolks2018

    Good then. I would want him to

  • Harley

    ????

  • Harley

    Please let them know!!

  • Scromes1212

    That's what dudes have to do when they have a whole other child while they with you smh

  • Harley

    ??????

  • FukkFolks2018

    That is winning? "Getting" someone to marry you is winning. When it is the second marriage for each. After he had a baby on her? Caramel we gonna agree to disagree. I think this sounds just all out crazy.

  • Harley

    Even if he didn’t as long as he provides and is in their lives is all that matters

  • Harley

    They have both

  • Coy little wink

    But the others are boys...maybe that's the difference. Plus gabby is union wade. Its not unified it doesn't have to be. My girlfriend did the same with her daughter...

  • Scromes1212

    Can you imagine a 6 foot 10 girl that looks like LeBron and D wade? That sh*t is scary smh

  • FukkFolks2018

    No it slights the other kids. Who are old enough to see this. Well dad says the older ones...why I aint tatted on you? if my mama go out right now and get the 34 yo name on her...I might not feel any kind of way bc that is HER skint. But 53 yo big sis is petty. Oh...she gonna ask.

  • MistaO

    Last name should be Wade only. Too many dudes pu ssfied catering to broads that don't appreciate it later anyways. Be a man...?

  • CaramelDrop

    Hell yeah I would. Remember, the older two are by A baby daddy. I don’t want a heauxazz thing from him! Don’t take care of your kids - then you will deal with that from your kids when they are grown and have to answer to your maker the day of judgment, Them are my MF’n kids regardless of what any nicca do. I’m that mama hat is proud of the compliments knowing I’ve held my down on my own soooooo yeah my energy is coming from how I apply this to my life. Baby I’m hulk when it comes to cleaning up my own mess - phuck a deadbeat when it comes to mine - they will be good regardless what a: nicca baby daddy or HUSBAND does. I’m cut from a different cloth idgaf about a excuse when it comes to YOUR KIDS

  • FukkFolks2018

    Xavier's mom most likely has a gag order. So we wont be seeing her complaining or saying much of anything PERIOD

  • CaramelDrop

    That gives a dad the right to not ack. a kid bc of the circumstance a kid was born under? Is that what you are telling me right now?
    ***************************************
    Kwall, you know I love you but if this was my baby letting these nicca knock her up before marriage after all I’ve taught her and let’s a sorry nicca at that impregnate her - it would be the same ! Pluck that nicca — You put yourself in this situation, now put on your big girl panties and let’s show this nicca it’s his lose! Ain’t begging a nicca for a heauxass thang and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

  • CaramelDrop

    I take pride in my eggs - will scrape, work two jobs, clean toilets, whipsazz DONT MATTER, for mine. Can’t let your baby be a pawn my mistakes like that heaux

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ova hea>>>>lmaoooo

  • CaramelDrop

    You’re right and you and your (Aja and heaux of the like not Scromes) bastard will take the back seat to the family At All Times ?????

  • Angelique Johnson

    just curious
    why did he put James in her name?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Who said Aja is begging? This is not about Aja. ALL OF MY COMMENTS ARE ABOUT DWADE. I dont care about Aja. In THIS INSTANCE I dont even care about Gabby. My comment was about I dont see an Xavier tat OR a tat of the other kids. Someone above said they are there. Okay cool. Other half of my very original'ist comment: I am a basketball fanatic. All of his kids were born during the season. DWade aint take no days off when Zion was born. He aint take none off when Xavier was born. I would have NOTICED or it would have been on SportsCenter. It was nah. When his oldest was born he was still at Marquette. Doubt he took time off then either. ALL EYE SAID. This stuff about eggs, hoes, official girlfrens, impregnantion, and situationships came from you. It took a real extra turn for the left.

  • bemetoo

    Why else would he have the name james

  • Miss Thang

    why does it even matter?

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Right. Women love to blame the other women and completely absolve the man. The sentiment I got from the post above was. The baby's a bastard. Mom's a who$re. Let Dwayne snd Gabby live? Make it make sense.

  • bemetoo

    ??? she gone have some strong features

  • bemetoo

    He use James sperm

  • FukkFolks2018

    It doesnt. Period. All the anger towards Aja when last I checked it takes two. And I am not sure what is going on..but I am outta here. .

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Gabrielle and Dwyane weren't married when the child was born and Gabrielle herself said that they were "on a break" when it happened. Even though TMZ proved otherwise so I don't get how she's a whore either?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I was wonderin when you was gone just bow out Folks and let it be!!

  • CaramelDrop

    But there is a different variable with this little girl..... This baby is A MIRACLE for them. The mother has written books and done countless interviews about her struggle with this. It’s a different situation- it’s Wrong to compare this birth with the others. Different money, status, conception difficulty, etc. Just trying to give you a different perspective.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Whew chile...peeples is in here in they feelings about this man and HIS kids!! and which ones he acknowledgin' and which ones he ain't....lmaoooffff!! I can't take it...it's like they know this man and his situation personally. I ain't never seen somebody so angry at what the world perceives as the other woman. Dwade and Gabrielle both said they wasn't together when that woman got pregnant. Like come on it ain't even that serious. Do we really care anyway? #ontothenextone

    I hate that. Kids names look like law firms. Plus it’s difficult when it comes to insurance or healthcare. Gotta look up 6 different combinations because the momma wanted to be included in the child’s future lineage. ?

  • T Willis

    I understand why Gabby kept her own maiden name - she’s a brand - but her child? It’s just such a mouthful. But, it is *her* child. To each their own.

  • CaramelDrop

    Well, yeah, you are tripping about the “personal real fast” part because YOU typed “you” referring to me in your post.

    I’m a big girl and can admit that I misunderstood that you were talking about the older kids recognition - which I agree with but where in the post did it say his other kids where slighted? AND, was social media as big as a presence during their births?

    I was referring to Aja and her baby the whole time.

    As for any other side ways comments Oh Well I said wtf i said. I’m off and have time today soooooo it’s whatever and it applies to WHOEVER.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I also wrote about men with mommy issues who seek out older women to control and dominate them. This tends to happen when single women raise boys in an environment that is hostile to men. These man children seek out angry, dominating women like their mothers.

  • T Willis

    That’s a good point. Lol she wanna make sure her kid is separated from the ex wife’s kids, the break baby, and the nephew they raising lmao

  • Renee26

    All kids are legitimate and none ask to be here. It's the responsibility of both parents to care for the child regardless of how it was conceived. God made the ultimate decision to make life come into the world. The child is here and shouldn't be treated differently or called names just because of the acts of the parents.

  • Angelique Johnson

    oh okay

  • FukkFolks2018

    what the world perceives as the other woman.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    When neither at the time were a wife. That is what made me chuckle. And it irks me when getting married/chose is described like some big huge reward. "Getting" him to marry her. SAY What?

    I was STRAIGHT UP bullied into marriage the first time by my now ex husband and BOTH our families. And I am being bothered about the crap AGAIN by the man I sleep with at night currently lmao. If anything they are "getting me" to marry THEM. That was funny to me.

  • supastar

    You know everybody on the INNANET is PERFECT

  • supastar

    LOL that sound like me.

  • T Willis

    Personally, I think it’s narcissistic. If you want your own separate lineage, don’t get married. Marriage is about joining houses - not hyphenating them. This isn’t a business merger, it’s a marriage. Unifying of two houses to become 1- i.e. - 1 last name. I have the biggest pet peeve with this hyphenated name stuff.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker.......

  • CaramelDrop

    That’s true Renee but the way this world is set up - that is the situation. I didn’t invent or define bastard or illegitimate I’m sure those man made institutions werent in the fold during creation but they are here now. The only reason it’s not as much as an issue today is because more than half of the population in America is produced from an unmarried couple. Marriage doesn’t set anyone up for success - it guarantees legitimacy ????? Not that legitimacy makes anyone less/more. It just is what it is. Don’t like it, don’t do it. I’m not judging at all, but you can’t be mad at the worldly label you put on your seed.

  • Coy little wink

    Its 6 syllables...some people have way more than that ?

    Google it.

  • T Willis

    From the back shots, Kaavia looks like such a beautiful little girl. I hope they show more close ups.

    I think Kaavia James is a beautiful name. I’m coming around to “James” being more of a unisex name for both boys and girls. Especially when it’s followed by an uber girlie name.

    As for hyphenated names, ugh, I hate them lol. I know this is a common trend with Latinos (irks my soul), but, I think the trend needs to stay with the Latinos or Europeans or whatever nationality still continues with the practice. It’s narcissistic in my opinion. A means of catering to the woman and her father lol. Marriage is supposed to be a unification of two households. As a result, the woman (I’m aware of the patriarchy lol) forfeits her maiden name to take on the name of her new household. I’m not a fan of kids with law firm names (James Hardwick-Johnson) lmao I’m just not. Like I said, it makes sense for celebs to do it - like Gabby Union - who already have a recognizable brand - but I don’t think she should carry that trend to her daughter. A daughter, who’s hyphenated name will make her stand out amongst her siblings (as well as the nephew that Dwade is raising), who all have different mothers. It’s not cool and it is a bit of shade attached to it lol...

    But again, it’s *her* daughter ?????

    But why? Marriage IS a business venture...its a legal contract. The parties do business as they see fit. Some men take the wife's name. Some women keep their maiden name. Its whatever floats their boat. You are not required by law to change your name.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    From what I'm reading it's due to evolution!! not because somebody splicin' and dicin' and pourin' up in the lab, Sandra.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Kaavia...Sounds like a brand of coffee. I'm okay with the name James for a girl. My coworker's FIRST name is Wallace!!! (She's a backwoods cracka tho...) Most of these celebrities try and find the most unusual names for their kids.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LLLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

  • Coy little wink

    It really doesn't matter...people can name their children whatever they want pretty much...there are no rules

    That’s not the etymology of the word “marriage”, and it’s not the usage of it in modern American civilization. If it’s a business arrangement, then it needs a separate word and a separate meaning. I’m not a fan of taking words with very specific etymology, traditions, and creating a parallel definition based on a few similarities. They decided to get married. That context, that meaning, that etymology, it all means something in this country and in American culture. If they feel differently then they need to create another word or coin a new phrase - akin to “conscious uncoupling” lol - to define their relationship or arrangement. But don’t piss on me and try to call it rain. Naw, don’t work like that.

    “men seek out angry dominating women like their mothers”
    **************
    Totally describes what I assume of Dwade. His ex wife definitely shows these characteristics and Gabby gives off “closet evil ich” to me.

    Was he raised in a two parent home?

  • Coy little wink

    I'm an attorney hun its a business contract we studied marriage in contract law class...too many folks do not realize this simple fact...

  • T Willis

    Congrats. That doesn’t negate what I’m saying. But I appreciate the tidbit about your working profession ??

  • Coy little wink

    Well I'm trying to help you understand the name change has nothing to do with a legal marriage. Name change is a tradition. Like exchanging a ring or wearing a white dress, or jumping a broom...it has nothing to do with what marriage is...a contract

  • Ang

    I assumed James is the middle name. I don’t think James a unisex name no matter how many people name their daughter that. It’s no different to me than naming your daughter Kevin. You can, but it’s still a boy’s name lol. I have seen some girls with the middle name spelled Jaymes. That’s a little better but still James. But, no one uses their middle name in everyday life so it’s not a big deal.

    I didn’t think about the girl being the only kid with a different last name. You make a good point. I’m sure that was more of Gabby being extra and trying to make some point no one cares about. The kids already have three different moms. It would have been nice to give them some unity. Oh well. I have a feeling the Union-Wade household is going to be an interesting place to grow up ?

  • T Willis

    Aside from the legal aspect that you were taught in law school, how much do you know about the etymology of marriage, in correlation with its tradition and the connection it had to spirituality? Law school teaches you the legality aspect of traditions or systems overseen by the government. Do you realize that there was a system in place that was in direct connection with religion? This is going into a whole other sphere that has nothing to do with what you were trained to regurgitate in law school. Like I said, I appreciate the tidbit, but I don’t think you can add anything additional to what I’m saying.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whaaa????????? I hope this is a hoax...

  • Coy little wink

    I know enough to make my own traditions... its ridiculous to me that people are so stuck on shyt that has no rhyme or reason to the actual purpose of things...

    Law school teaches the law.

  • Applebum

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Maybe LeBron is going to be her God-Father

  • Harley

    Well it seems America is the only country that has issues with names. In other countries names be like 15 sentences and it’s not an issue

  • Harley

    True but regardless the situation is different so the relationship will be

  • T Willis

    It’s an issue to me - an obviously most Americans ?.

    But to each their own

  • Dee Dup

    Lmao I swear Sandra makes this **** up as she goes. That baby is not named after LeBron James. The James comes from Gabby's uncle. Sandra could have said they named that baby after James Brown and y'all would have ran with it smh

  • Mz_Opinionated

  • Dee Dup

    Lmao man Sandra makes these post up as she goes. That baby is not named after LeBron. The James comes from Gabby's uncle. Sandra could gave said they named the baby after James Brown and y'all would have ran with it.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Okay, I see it's a WHOLE lot going on in this comment section. Let me take myself elsewhere *whistles right outta here *

  • Dee Dup

    Y'all gone keep running with this lie? LeBron has nothing to do with that child's name. James is the name of Gabby's uncle he passed a little while ago. They addressed this today on IG.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I guess I was thinking about Kava too. I knew there was some brand of coffee that began with a K!

  • Dee Dup

    It's the truth. Don't nobody here bother to fact check. Sandra said it so it's obviously the truth smh

  • Nina Ross

  • Alextra Ballard

  • J2PC

    Newsflash: Marriage is more than just a house merger. In Western societies, it is a spiritual merger for unity via marital vows to God. It is also a business contract & legal merger via the laws of this land: Business in that you have to mind your bank accounts, finances, careers or jobs & held responsible for signing off on your taxes.

    Legal merger would be needing the courts to sign off on a Marriage License & Certificate to generate a tracking for taxes, responsibility and all. That makes marriage a contract because it requires going back to the courts to start a Divorce proceeding to undo the marriage that they validated. That legal document to prove the marriage has legally ended is a decree. -the rest is just personal opinion which varies from person to person. There is no one-size fit all because cultures & traditions are different.

    Your definition of marriage may or may not be the same as the next person. Hyphenating can still be considered joining 2 houses. You have 2 different adults coming from 2 different lineages & surnames.

    That child will have it easier in life using the surnames of his or her successful parents. Being proud of one's lineage on both sides is a beautiful thing.

  • Harley

    Other cultures and people in other parts of the world have lengthy names. Americans are super closed minded when it comes to certain things.
