What's in a Name?

“What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” - William Shakespeare.

What is the importance of a name? Why is it that a child having the father's last name is something that has to happen? Why when that child is a boy? Does it really matter that the family name is carried on? Majority of the names now can only go back a few generations anyway? Someone please explain this to me.
