India: Naming newborn in Switzerland

Hi,

Appreciate if someone please help on this:

Suppose: Mother's Name - Firstname YYY
Father's Name - Firstname ZZZ
i.e. both surnames are different

Regarding naming our newborn, we want to propose that our child adopts Fatherís FirstName as LastName as is prevalent in southern states of India. Is this acceptable according to Swiss norm?
