Family of three, two last names. Problem?

When I got married I never changed my last name. We're pregnant now (yay!), and thinking the baby will have my last name. Dad will likely big picking kiddo up from daycare/school a lot and we'll be traveling internationally a lot (Oz-US). How big a deal is it if dad has a different surname?

FWIW, our surnames do not combine or hyphenate well at all. Dad's thinking about taking my surname, or we might all take his step-dad's (who raised him) surname. Or just stay with different names...? (Husband's current surname is from his somewhat absent father whom he has mixed feelings about - probably a no-go.)
