My son has a different last name then me and I've traveled with him without any problem. In fact, I was kinda taken aback that it was so easy - he really could have been anyone's kid.

I've talked with adoptees who felt that the names they were given at orphanages were still very important to them - because they were given to them in the country they were born in - which to them mattered. And, depending on the child and the orphanage, etc., some are very bonded with their caregivers so it is still a connection to them. The life they live between the life with first family and life with adoptive family is still their life - still a part of them.
