I believe the Developer's Certificate of Origin (DCO) in
Documentation/pr
ocess/submitting-patches.rst just asks
for a "full name".

If Ayush has no surname, then I imagine that his actual
full name Ayush should be good enough for the DCO.

A line like "Signed-off-by: Ayush <ayush@disroot.org>"
should be fine.
