Thank you all! Truly appreciate your feedback.
Of course this has been discussed this with family and close friends but sometimes it's helpful to get an outsiders opinion.

Hi! I have 4 adopted siblings (I am the only biological one). My twin brothers were adopted at the age of 3 months, and my parents changed their names completely. They were given up by teen parents at birth, so I'm not even sure if the names they until they were adopted were given by the biological parents. My sister was 6 when she was adopted into our family. She had a fn/mn/ln. My parents wanted her to feel like she was a part of our family, so the kept her fn, gave her a mn after my mom, kept her last name another mn, and was given our family name as her last.
I think the suggestion of adding your last name onto his, while keeping his last name as a second middle name is ideal. He will still always have that part of him, and grow up to know that you respected that enough to keep that name for him.

I think it would be confusing to have a child with a different last name. Also, he will think of YOU as his parents. Maybe just put his bio-mom's last name in for his middle name?Anastasia, Tessa, Marina, Stella
