If you're in the States, check with your state's Vital Records department. Yes, her father will need to be notified of the change, and he'll be given a chance to petition the court prior to the decision.

That is IF you live in the US

I would keep her last name as is...you can make your last name her middle name. Now that my boys are older 9 and 5 they want to take on my maiden...what I suggested to you is what I'm going to do for my boys. That way they can have the best of both worlds and it won't crush my husband...lol! I hope this help...keep me posted on what you decide.
