Dear @Denny28, thank you for using our platform and contributing to the community. As for your questions: 1. If you are married and have the same surename the child gets it as well. 2. If you are holding different surenames but hold "Gemeinsames Sorgerecht" shared custady then you both can decide which one the child should get. 3. If you are not holding shared custady then name of the mother will be taken for the child- however you have the chance to change that afterwards as well. I hope we could assist you in your question, if there are further clearification needed feel free to contact us. Best regards, Nilab
