It's rare when a son doesn't take the father's last name. At this point, the monster is acknowledging that he's a Frankenstein, and referring to a person by his last name is a common practice. So calling him Frankenstein is not exactly wrong. If people referred to him as "Victor", then it would be appropriate.
