However both parents have to sign the birth registration paperwork and I'm not sure what happens when the parents disagree about the name..?

I'm going to go slightly against the grain here, not because I disagree with you or think FOB is right (not at all!)... I'm just thinking your baby might want their dad's name attached to theirs at some point. And no matter how awful FOB is, he'll still be the dad of your baby and part of your baby's heritage.
I'd hyphenate, or just put both last names without a hyphen (like they do in South American/Spanish countries), then when your baby is older they can make a choice of they'd prefer to use one or both etc.
Good luck OP, I know it's easy for me to make this suggestion - if it was me in your shoes, I think I'd struggle to make the decision without my hurt and anger playing a big part in my decision. Xx

I hate that he has just walked back in and is now trying to call the shots with me. I feel like im being held hostage

I would definitely choose another first name, if the one you had both agreed on is creating those feelings in you now, then chances are they will only get worse over time.

As i understand it OP, you won't be able to change baby's name later without his agreement, so getting his surname off later would be much harder than adding it on later if you do get back together, iykwim. Good luck with the birth ☺

If he felt remorse about everything he's done, he'd leave the decision up to you. It's just a name. You aren't denying him his child. I would be giving the bub my last name.
He is not giving himself a good track record
