Baby Names

If a female is married and pregnant with someone else's baby does she have to give the baby her husband's last name?

No the last name of the child's would be the biological fathers or her maiden name. If your husband wants your child to share his last name, he will have to go through an adoption process and have the name changed in court. It's a fairly simple hearing if all individuals participating are present and in agreement.
