Let’s say you’re pregnant with your first child–a baby girl. You intend to have one more baby after this one.
You also have two family names you’d like to pass down. Both are girl names, and both are equally significant to you. You can give either one or both of these names to baby #1.
If you give her just one of the names, and baby #2 is a boy, you’ll be forced to leave that other important girl name behind.
But if you give her both of the names, and baby #2 is a girl, your older daughter gets two family names while the younger one gets zilch.
Which option would you choose? (Please tell me why in the comments.)
