The normal procedure of change of name is as follows -
1. The local notary should be contacted and a affidavit should be prepared . Reasons for changing the name should also be cited in the affidavit e.g. due to marriage (generally in case of women), numerological or astrological considerations etc.
2. A news item about the change in name should be published preferably in two local dailies and at least 10 copies of the same/cuttings should be kept for use in future.
3. Next and final step is Gazette notification. Visit the Government press or the concerned department which coordinates publications. Obtain and fill two copies of Deed Changing Surname Form and follow further instructions.
After publication of notification in the official Gazette, the name change process completes.

In your case it is quite easy to change your child's name in the birth certificate. First of all your child is only 6 months old so you will not have to give reasons regarding change in name to the concerned department. What you have to do is to approach the hospital from where you got his birth certificate endorsed and request them to change your child's name.
*You should get this corrected before your child turns one year old otherwise it can lead to complications.
Another alternative is to approach the nearest court and get an affidavit endorsed which states that your child bears both the names.
You can even apply for a fresh certificate as the original birth certificate comes to effect only after the child turns 18 months old.

I am agree with Mr Adarsh Kumar, if you want to change your baby name then you can contact with the hospital directly and told them that there is a wrong name written in the certificate so please modify. By the help of this process you may change the name of your daughter and other process is that you can directly change the name of your baby through court.
