There is not any issue with that name because last name is always considered as surname, however if you would like to change the name than you can apply for reissue of passport and take appointment of Passport Seva Kendra via passportindia.gov.in and visit PSK with an letter on plain paper (Application) and new PP will be come with your new name. Not any other formalities.
