Question: When I was young I went to watch my realtives get baptized. I didn't have a clue about their faith or why they were doing this. I ended up getting baptized with them and under their last name. Does that matter? Should I have been baptized under my own last name?

Answer: The only name that matters is the name Jesus. As long as you were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins by a believer, your baptism should be fine. If you have strong doubts about it, then you need to discuss this with your spiritual leaders and consider getting baptized properly.
