    I would definitely change his last name to yours (that is the secondary reason my step-dad adopted me, the first obviously being he was more of a father to me than my bio-dad ever was) but I would also use his mother's last name as a middle or second middle.

    I agree with making his birth mother's last name his middle name, and giving him your surname. Makes the most sense.

    I agree with some previous posters that the appropriate thing to do is to give him your last name, so he feels accepted into the family, but you could keep his mother's surname as a 2nd middle so he doesn't lose that connection to her. It feels like the best of both worlds, imo.

    Well as everyone has said, change his last name. It's personally up to you if you want to keep the mom's surname and stick it in the middle spot.
