His name or mine?

Hiya im new to all this but i got a problem which is driving me crazy and i was wandering if anyone could help me with what they think.

Basically, im 18 years old and getting pregnant with my boyfriend was an accident but we didnt mind too much cos we had been together 3 years. Since ive been pregnant we have had more of an on/off relationship cos we've been arguing so much, probably mainly down to my hormones.

He wants me to put the babys surname as his rather than mine, and hes been telling me that his parents are getting really annoyed cos i said i might not. Ive got him and his family saying how selfish i am cos i wont put the babys surname as his, and then all my family and friends saying that seeing as im not engaged or married to him, id be better off and safer having the baby's surname as my own incase we split up.
