Good question - that I don't have answer for. This is a customer to customer forum, and I think you need an offical answer from the airline.

 

Thus, my suggestion would be to e-mail the airline. To do so click on contact us at the bottom of this page, and then pick e-mail from the coices listed on the top left of the ensuing page.

How far out is your trip? My understanding is that you can fly without a surname. You should contact Southwest directly to confirm but most likely you'll fill out your ticket to be the same as your passport.

 

However, depending what you are doing in the USA and how long you'll be here, there could be some consideration in terms of name on a visa that you may want to have a passport from your country to show a first and last name which will simplify other forms of correspondence that would be based on your naming in a visa.

 

Here is an article on the topic that may help explain:
