    I live in Oklahoma, I am 17 years old and my fiance is 16, are plans are to get married when she is 18, we have a baby on the way, but we wont be married by the time our child is born, would my baby be able to take my last name? or would he/she have to take their mothers seeing as how were not married yet? or is it up to their mother whos name my baby has?

    The mother of the child can name the child anything she wants, because until you legally establish paternity, you don't even have a child.
