How do I change the name of my sim
Guest answered:

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.

I had a married couple with baby ..I made that husband become best friends with their male neighbor and he asked him to move in with them in their guest room (so I could have an available house)Suddenly, the new guy got heir last name. I guess he's the brother now.

To change the surname back you have to move them into a house of a person who has the old surname. I wanted to change the name back so created a new person with tome old name and had him move in with them then deleted the newest character so it was back to how it was.

You have to do an ultimate make over (which consumes 12 LP) and you will be able to change the name...
Guest said: 17th Aug 2017 | REPORT
Use the LP points to do an ultimate makeover, but make sure it's the head of the household. I changed my girl's name and everyone in the house took it.
Guest said: 16th May 2018 | REPORT
Which sim do you do the ultimate make over on though??

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.

I want to change the gender of my daughter and I don't know what would happen if I moved the baby out of town(also if it means I have to do the waiting for 12 hrs or so again then I'm gonna cry)
Guest said: 25th Nov 2018 | REPORT
If you want to change the gender of your baby sim you have to have 12 LP and do the Extreme Makeover and then you can make the baby into a boy and change the name to a boy’s name. Or you can delete the girl baby and make a new baby but that will cost you 2, 3, or 5 LP (depending on how you have it) and you’ll have to wait 24 hours.
Guest answered:

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.

sxpxrchxxts answered:

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.

How do you move the sim back to the house with their partner for 5,000 simoleons?
Guest said: 10th Aug 2016 | REPORT
You can't he's wrong
Guest said: 19th Aug 2017 | REPORT
He's not you can. Click on n empty house and choose the option then the individual sim you want to move (or family)
Guest answered:

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 now have just click on your sim, and select the red circle with a line through it next to his/her name
Guest answered:

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.

My sim was living in a household with a married couple and has same last name with them, she is married to another household now but still has the same surname. How do i change her surname without using the ultimate makeover. Pls help
Jackol_12 answered:

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?
Guest said: 25th Feb 2015 | REPORT
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!

What if u don't have the LP? My married couple also has a son, and I tried the moving thing but you can't separate the married couples, and I also don't want a divorce...what to do?!?!
Guest said: 25th Nov 2018 | REPORT
you can move the entire household for 8,000 simoleons
Guest answered:

[color=red][size=12]The same thing is happening to me now but what I have todo is leave it coz there is nothing else to do and I don't want to start again x

monkeyspankr answered:

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.

Guest answered:

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. :-)

Guest answered:

Yes you can change the name you just hit the person and click ultimate makeover and it will let you change the name but sadly it cost me 12 LP hope his helped

How do you change the last name
Guest answered:

If you want to change a Sims real name, make the green diamond go above the one you want to change their name and click ultimate make over. It costs 12 Lifestyle points, but they sell them cheap at the store. Hope this helped! Give a 👍🏻 if you like and a 👎🏻 if you dislike.... Don't dislike it because you need 12 LPs🤖

Guest answered:

So just make sure the one with the last name you want asks to move in. If it happens you can have the man move out by creating another sim with the same last name and making them best friends. Then just try to move them in together again. She'll take his name if he asks, I think. Even if it's his house and it seems weird.

Guest answered:

You have to press the sim you want the name changed and press on "Ultimate Make Over". It will cost some LP though. I'm pretty sure that's how to change the name.

La_la_girl06 answered:

Unfortunately you can't. I made that mistake and decided to name a sim " Pinky Pie " because I wanted her to be a pop star. I soon regretted my desicion as I did not want a pop star anymore. I managed to get her married to a " Luscimbe " but now her name is Pinky Luscimbe!! Why did I do that!?! Hahaha!! Sorry.

Guest answered:

The easiest way is to tap on your sim and tap "extreme makeover". It costs 12 LP. You could also create a character with the proper last name and have the character you want to have that name become good friends with them, and have the new sim ask them to move in. You can then delete the new sim if you want by tapping on them and tapping the red button to the right of their name.

Guest answered:

For Sims 4, click on a Mirror and select change sim. It will bring up create a sim and you can edit the name there.

Guest answered:

You can't change last names unless you move them, so what you can do is make a new sim with the guy's last name, make the guy and the new person become good friends, make the guy move in with the new person, and then make the GUY ask the GIRL to move in. Then you can just delete the new person. They will now have the guy's last name!
