Registering Birth

Hiya Everyone

I've got 3 weeks left to go before due date and just getting things sorted as much as I can.

I had a question I was going to ask when we register the birth but someone else may be able to help.

Were not married yet but it's on the cards next year. We will both register the birth. I was born with the surname Smith but a couple of months ago decided to use my mothers maiden name as my surname which is Jones (not actual surnames).

On the birth certificate do I put Smith or Jones as my surname. I didn't change my name by deed pole or anything. Do the registrars actually check anything?

Thanks :-)
