I imagine this James Bond style. "Der Name ist Gut. Sehr Gut" :-)

"The name is good" barely makes sense in English. Poor example.

Why not surname?

"Der Name" can be a first name, last name, whole name, name of cat, whatever. A surname is much more specific than that so it's not the right translation (a surname is "der Zuname", among other options).
