If you just happened if you switch the device and connect to your old game it will take you a little bit back

Make a third sim with the last name you want. Have both your existing sims get married/move in with the third sim. Make sure it's the third sim who does the asking.

Alternately, be all new-fangled and ignore it.

Move the unwanted sim out of town.

Have the married sims be rude until a divorce option pops up. They will still have the same last name but you can make a third sim and marry them with the last name you want. The sim that asks the other sim to move in is the one that will take the last name.

That also happened to me! Help anybody?

I had this happen to 2 households. If you avoid marriage you can click on the Sim with the incorrect name and then click the BIG RED X on the top right and it will ask if you want to move that Sim out of town. Then you can add a Sim into another home with correct name and start the relationship over. Just make sure you move the Sim with correct last name you want into the house of the one that will asking the other to move in. Wish it could be easier, but it's the easiest one I've come across. I haven't tried it with a married couple, only for 2 partnered couples.

Same happened to me. Another Sim moved in with me, because they asked me at my house and I wasn't ready to give up on the house that I created.

Add a new sim with the last name you want to an existing but empty house (or build a new one) and ask the sim you want to change the last name of to move in and then move him/her back for 5.000 simoleons.
Be careful not to make them move back by asking, otherwise this will happen again.
Afterwards you can delete the sim that you only add for the name thing.
That's how I will do it.

You go to the wardrobe and browses clothes, in the top left hand corner should be a red sim with an X over it. You click it and then it says move sim. To change last name you have to create a new sim

You can only change their last name by moving in with another sim. You can do that by being a good friend with them or you will have to be partners. Also you can have two sims get married but that comes on later in the game.

Click on the sim and there's the option of "have birthday" and "ultimate make-over for 12 LP"

On the ultimate makeover you can change the surname of the sim.

Hope this helps.

Where to click?

I had the problem of my female sim having asked my male sim to move in because she had thr nicer house and I didn't know he would take her name. Mine are named after characters so it made for a problem. But I read through all the comments and tried this with ultimate makeover since my sims are married and workin on a baby now so I didn't want to mess up my quests but it wotked! I changed his last name back and it also changed hers. Just cost 12LP for me but you can buy them for not too much from the store. Easiest fix by far. Thanks!

Simply make your sims get a divorce then relocate the sim you want to have the last name changed , then get the sim that has the last name you desire for your other sim , to ask the other sim to move in and then have them remarry then you should have the last name you wanted in the first place. Im working on this myself right now. Now keep in mind you need 5,000 to relocate a sim. Hope this works for you good luck.

YES!! You CAN change names. It cost 12 LP though. You click on the sim when it is selected (green diamond over head) and then select ULTIMATE MAKEOVER. Also, if you change their last name when they are married and/or have children, it will change the entire families last name automatically. :-)
