Why should only Sons carry the Yumnak (Surname) of their father, why can’t daughters?

Why is the Father given more rights over his offsprings? Why should only Sons carry the Yumnak (Surname) of their father, why can’t
daughters? How does the Surname of a daughter change just because she marries a person belonging to a different Surname? What is the
necessity of maintaining only the man’s ancestry; why not maintain that of women too?
This was the question that was puzzling me about this patriarchal system of society in my gender studies of sociology till recently, until I found out the scientific reasoning behind it.
