Thank you for the extra information. I’m not quite certain what the problem is here because you say that you had agreed that he would have your surname and is health records would have your name but now you seem to have changed your mind.
The short answer to your question is no, you cannot stop her registering the child with any name.
Exaggerating to prove the point, but literally, if she wants to register the child is Mickey Mouse, she’s entitled to do that.
She cannot put you down as the father unless you consent and attend.
So if you wanted both of your surnames, then go for it provided it doesn’t become unwieldy.
Having your name on the birth certificate as the father (as opposed to just the child having your name) gives you parental responsibility and assay in the child’s upbringing.
However your name down as the father or not, your the biological father and it would make any difference as to whether you pay child maintenance or not. You are liable for child maintenance regardless.
