When I arrived in the UK from Italy in 2003 I met a wonderful woman and we both fell in love. I could not even speak good English at that time, we used to go to the gym together, she had very long blonde hair.
Unfortunately, I was not ready for commitment at that time.
20 years after we still see each other regularly some periods more than others. She is married and has 4 children with her husband. I am married and I have 3 children with my wife.
This year we decided to have a child. We did not think it all through, all the implications.
I feel that for me to satisfy God, and my ancestors, I need to pass onto my new daughter (yes she is a girl and she looks a lot like me - we saw in the 4G scan - she is 30 weeks now) Italian citizenship.
However, because we want to keep it undisclosed to the school and all people not closely related to us, that she has a different father to the one who is raising her, we agreed and I agreed that my surname - Giuliani - will no need to be in her name, but I want it to be in her birth certificate - because of the Italian heritage.
Can I have my name in her birth certificate and at the same time my family name will not be her family name?
for example her name is Annie Faith Jones, only. but in her birth certificate there will be said that the father is: Salvatore Giuliani.
Or would it be a requirement that her name be Annie Faith Giuliani?
Would this be accepted by the Italian consulate?
PS - I am very happy and very thankful for this baby.
PS2 - I am asking about the process of registering a child born abroad.
I am also looking for clarification regarding the child's eligibility to Italian citizenship.
