I think it's problematic, unless by "father's name" You meant "guardian's name."

 But you can give him/her your family name without any problem.

They don't have guardian name i believe.

I know, I meant what they actually mean when they ask about "father" of the child? do they mean "biological father?"

If yes, then Islamically it is Haram to claim biological parenthood of a child who was born to another family.

but if they mean "father" in the widest sense which includes step-father and guardian, that's Ok.

    • What stage is she?
    • How can they be misguided when they believe in same pillars of the faith and books of hadiths?
    •   We must understand that the akhbaries are our brother in Islam, just misguided. Their literature is extremely persuasive and even attractive to the uninitiated. This 400 yr old dead philosophy had been reintroduced by mere chance amd the pervasive way in which their literature is being freely distributed is mere coincidence. OR Yasser Habib is able to have expensive Satellite broadcasting equipment, can take over a small British town, and is viciously aggressive towards Sunnis and their leaders. These Are paid for and planned activities designed to foment fassaad and fitnah. The same way wahabism,qadianis, and bhai were introduced as splintering movements. So when you play into hands of the puppet master and yourself  "QUO VADIS" Who benefits from Muslims, imamis, and shia  movements being splintered. Who is threatened by our Unity, who has encouraged Muslims to fight amongst themselves, who would be more vulnerable if we become United.   always ask not just what is being said, but what is the motivation and implication of such speech. Critical thinking skills used to be plentiful in the Muslim Ummah, let's revive that.
