Birth register entries don't show a surname for the child in England/Wales (until 1969), so are always indexed under the surnames of one (or both) parent(s) depending on their marital status.

A birth being indexed under two surnames would normally indicate an unmarried couple, but where both are named on the register entry, although there are other possible explanations and you can't be certain from the index alone.

(note that the old paper indexes, as seen on Ancestry, FindMyPast, FreeBMD etc. and the "new" GRO on-line index use slightly different indexing rules so results can differ, especially in this type of situation).
