Does a Child’s Name Affect Retroactive Child Support?
The court cannot deny retroactive child support, if you are legally entitled to it regardless of whom you name your child after including naming him after the man in the moon.
I don’t know whether or not you were married to him. If you were married to him, you may not be eligible for retroactive support. If you were not married to him, absent other factors, you could be entitled to retroactive child support from the time the child was born.
You should talk to Child Support Enforcement in the county where you live.
