I was going to try to train my dog in German, but kept accidentally defaulting to Mando'a. I didn't get very far though, since the neighbours took my dog... :ugh:

I made a thread for that actually.

Here's a couple questions sort of relevant in the face of discussing marriage and the like:
Which partner leaves his/her clan to go to the other's? Do you keep your clan name or take your partner's? Who decides which name your children will have?

In Legends, couples did not appear to take the name of either one. Mirta Ghev remained Mirta Ghev when she married Ghes Orade.

In Canon, according to Dave Filoni (Rebels' Recon season 3), the person who marries into the clan of higher status takes that clan name. So if the man marries a woman who belongs to a clan of a higher status than the man's, he takes her clan name. (As happened with Sabine Wren's father; her mother was the Wren, and her father married into the clan. However, we still don't know if his name actually changed.)

I don't know how the child's name would work, though.

I don't know if Legends canon ever said what happens with kids' names. Kad did take Darman's clan name of Skirata, but given that his mother was formerly an aruetii it might be weird if he was Venku Tur-Mukan. Really the only cases of kids taking names I can think of are cases like Boba where there's only one "birth" parent or cases like Bardan where we're being adopted in by a single father.

It is noted that fathers traditionally pick the children's given names in Mandalorians that have a human sort of reproduction and marriage going on. I don't know if that means they'd take the father's clan name necessarily, though. Or if the clan with the higher status gets priority clan name wise like in current canon. My current gut feeling is to go with the "higher status clan decides the clan name" idea and just slotting that in right now, since that's easiest. Maybe have a caveat of "the parents and kid can decide whatever the fuck they want". Mandos seem to really love individuality and personal decisions, so I could see kids potentially deciding which clan name they prefer to take.
