The first thing you need to do is get a paternity test preferably a DNA. Even if you are positive, the court will want solid proof. Family Court is concerned with what is in the best interest of the child. And doesn't view him/her as a possession that can be "given" to anyone.

The first thing you have to do is establish paternity. But you can't "make" the father sign over his parental rights. He has the right to be a part of the child's life (unless the court deems him unfit, and even then he would likely have the right to supervised visits with the child) just as he has the obligation to financially support the child. If the father does want to terminate his parental rights and you agree to that, then you also give up the right to pursue him for child support.

Can you register the birth of your child without naming the father?

Yes, you can. Most states prohibit naming a father without either a marriage license or a DNA test. Of course, if you are unmarried and sue the child's father for child support, the father's name will be added to the birth certificate. Also, in almost all child support cases, the child's last name is changed to the father's last name.

Can you be held responsible for a child without a DNA test being taken?

A DNA test can only prove that you are NOT the father. If you were married at the time or if were not married and the mother claims that you were the father, the courts will assume that you are responsible. It is your obligation at that point to prove otherwise. * Not if you contest the suit/act naming you as the father. DNA testing establishes parentage and rules out the possibility of parentage. It is the responsibiity of the mother who files for child support to prove that the person named as the father is the father. It is the responsibiiity of a father seeking custodial rights to prove he is the father or seeking to be relieved of parental obligation that he is not the father. Obviously either type of suit will determine parentage.
