I am a Muslim, married a Christian girl without her getting converted, which religion should my kids follow? is it okay to keep her family name as child's middle name as she is the only daughter and there is no one to continue her family name?

Will be perfect if your wife is a muslim. However based on the Quran it is acceptable for a man to have wife from people of the book. However you should raise your children in Islam. Because there is a verse in the quran that say "Guard you and your family from the hell fire".
Regarding name, in Islam there is no concept of "muslim name" and non "muslim name", also there is no concept of Family Name. The only criteria is as long as the meaning is not bad will be OK. So yes you can name your children whatever you want, as long the meaning is not bad.
The Prophet said: "Do not eat before you are hungry, and stop eating before you are full"
"1/3 of your stomach for food 1/3 for water, 1/3 for air"
