Unless her name is legally changed in court, your daughter's
legal name is the one on her birth certificate. As an 
unmarried mother the right to decide what name is given for
the birth certificate is yours.

Let me know where this takes you...

There is no answer at this time.

The larger issue here has to do with who the child identifies with. 
Ir she has a relationship with her father you might want to consider
letting her use his mame.  BTW you never say how old your daughter is.
 Also, and this is a moral judgement, your kids, and probably you,
would be better off if you were married and they had a father and then
none of this would be an issue.
