Default Is this acting in bad faith?

So ex hasn’t spoken to my son since early May and has ignored all communication from me. I finally receive an offer from my ex who is looking to give up a all parenting-time and have 0%. He also dropped the fight to get decision making and residency and agreed to raise CS to the correct value. All he is fighting to keep is the mobility radius of 50km and to prevent my son from changing his last name.

I don’t get how he’d be able to argue preventing my mobility when he has no parenting-time period, but my question is on the aspect of the last name of my son. He recently started therapy and told the therapist he wanted to take his step-fathers last name. The therapist spoke to him about it on many sessions and it’s clear it’s something he wants. Currently I have full legal authority to change my sons last name as I have sole custody and there is no current order preventing it.

However would it be seen as bad faith if my ex is seeking to add the prevention of a last name change and I go ahead and change it anyways (albeit I am in full legal authority to do so)?
