shouldn't it be "escribes"

No. The question is asking how the name of your father is written (spelled). So it takes on the form of "se escribe _ nombre". Just like if I wanted to ask you, "How do you spell/write the word happy in English?" it would be "¿Cómo se escribe la palabra 'happy' en inglés?"

"escribes" was accepted but I wish I had come up with "se escribe." I think it's a better answer.
