Being son of someone famous won't help to jinchuuriki.
Naruto is Uzumaki, and his clan crest is part of official Leaf chuunin/jounin attrie (meaning something, isn't?). But still she was hated. I highly doubt his exposition as Minato's son would help it. And it would definitely put him in danger, as Yondy had a LOT of enemies across the shinobi world.
And my 2 cents on him having mother's last name: When you marry someone from clan with history / bloodline, it is only logical if your child will be part of that clan. So, Naruto Uzumzki.
