More Chinese babies are given maternal family name
Since January 1, 2016, when the nation eased its one-child policy to allow families to have two children, more parents are handing down a maternal family name.  Breaking with deeply-rooted tradition, some parents are now giving their firstborn child the father’s surname and the second child the mother’s name.
