No he does not have to sign the birth record in the hospital for the child to have his last name. But the name of the father will not be on it. The child still will get his last name.

It depends on the state or province that the child is born.

In my state, you can give your child any name at all, first and last. My son's last name is Coldwater, which is not mine or his father's.

No, anyone could be put on the birth certificate and the child is able to be named after anyone that the mother chooses.
