Yes. The child does not need to be named after the father for him to be obliged to pay child support. He needs to be the biological father, that's all. Child support obligations arise from being the biological parent of a child and not on the child's name.

Will you still get child support payment if the father is on welfare?

Child support is calculated based on income of the father (or mother in such a case).

Welfare shouldn't matter.
