Parents Slammed for Giving Baby ‘Ridiculous’ Blended Last Name An Australian couple is being praised by some and criticized by some for creating a “mashup” last name for their daughter. Instead of giving their daughter the traditional last name of the father or doing a hyphenated version of both of their last names, they decided to do a mashup. Father’s name is Courtney Cassar and mom’s name is Laura Sheldon and they mashed up their last names to get Casseldon. They said they wanted their daughter to have a part of both of them. They did not opt for a hyphenated last name because they said inevitably one name tends to get dropped. What are your thoughts on this creative last name?
