If you know the answer to a question, then answer it.
If you do not know the answer, leave it blank.

  • never give an answer that you know to be false

In this case, you know the answer, so answer it.


Since it is possible that a childs surname is different than their fathers surname, the question is (for them) relevent.

Whether it makes sense or not is irrelevant

  • they want it, you give it

if not, they may refuse you the visa.


Based on the student visa application found here (german and english)

https://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/de/newsroom/buergerservice-faq-kontakt/faq/08-studentenvisum/606218

At the end of the form it is stated: that the form must be completed to the best of their knowledge and belief

Any

  • false
  • refused
  • incomplete

information can lead to refusal of a visa or if found out later expulsion.


In such matters it is wise (in my opinion) to always keep the old saying in mind:

  • Ours not to reason why, ours but to do and die
