You have to do a Petition for name change and file it with the court, in our state you have to do a legal advertisement for 2 weeks regarding the petition. If no one answers the legal add adversely, you change the name.

The bio father does NOT have to give up rights. Seriously call the courts, people can change their name for any reason. The bio father just cant contest it. If he does contest it you just bring your case up to the judge and he makes the final decision. But if he has nothing to do with the child he probably will not respond. His name does NOT effect child support, if he does give up his rights it does, but not just for a name change.

I believe the "sperm doner" has to give up all his parental rights.
