What surname can the child be given?

The child will normally be given the surname of the mother or father (even if the parents are not married to each other and the father does not attend with the mother).

Once the surname has been decided it can only be changed if:

  • the parent’s apply for the birth to be re-registered because they are not married to each other and the father’s particulars were not entered in the Register
  • the parent’s marry each other after the original registration - in this case the birth should be re-registered even if the child was given the father’s surname at the original registration

For both types of re-registration the Registrar will be pleased to advise you.
