Personally, I would include the fathers name on the birth certificate, but I would let the child have my last name.

If he wants to prove himself by sticking around, then the last name can be changed at a later time.

I am not sure if you need to have the fathers name on the certificate for child support.. that is if there is further complications in your relationship, and you end up parting ways..
Maybe check with your state, or government, to see if it is necessary to include the fathers name on the birth certificate in the event you need to claim child support.
