    Hi, welcome to iMore.

    Did you maybe assign your fathers number or email address to your FaceTime and iMessage in Settings?

    To check this, go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and remove the mark next to your fathers email address.

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’re here for you.

    Don't think this is what causes it - when I download photos to my laptop it says they come from my dad's phone too.

    Then go to Settings > General > About and change the name of the device.
