Changing a minor's name

My 10 year old son has my maiden last name. I have been married for 6 years now, and he would like to change his name. On his birth certificate, there is not a father listed. I have only had contact with his biological father on one occassion since my son's birth, and that was over 8 years ago. Paternity has never been established and I would prefer to keep it that way. Do I need to have ''permission'' from his father to change my son's name?
