I like Parker because of the defeniction of the name Parker. These names helped me a lot to find a good last name for my Sims game. I hope that this site gets a lot of reviews and that people think that this site is great. If not There's something wrong. So Thanks once again.
I'm writing a story and the girl's name is Hunter. And Hunter Parker is perfect for her name.
It's really good, Drake Parker was my favorite name and I absolutely recommend it to someone looking for something very simple, and easy to articulate. So Parker is actually one of the best names you could have.
I love this name because... I reads wattpad and it's there... MS. PARKER
More comments about Parker

This is an awesome last name it has this sudden sexiness to it. I would change my last name to this or just marry someone with this last name. I just absolutely adore this name so so much. Seems to be number 1 for a very good reason
I have a boyfriend, Alex O'connor, and his best friend's last name is Mertinez! And, I just really like this name!
I was planning on changing my last name, this is my last name, and since its so popular, I'll keep it
It just has such a fun feel to it. I love the way it sounds and the way it looks.
More comments about Martinez

I like this name! I think it should go number 1 &. Martinez... Don't sounds good to me. Hunter: I see this one more like a first name! Johnson.. This one don't go with every name :) I don't know anyone who wants to be call John Johnson! Smith is just perfect ;)
John Smith, Emily Smith, Connor Smith... It goes with all names!... Davenport is the best though!
I like this last name because it is short and sweet. This last name is mine as well. My full last name is Ashley Adam Smith. I wish every one can have this name like me. I like some more names at this website. I hope every enjoys reading my comment. Thanks Again!
I love this last name. It goes with every name! I honestly think it should be #1 because it goes with every thing. Like black or white.
More comments about Smith

I like this one. It is very meaning full. If used in a story book you could make a great plot about just her name. Plus "Diamond" as a last name, gives the character a fun twist that the author can add to the story <3.
Awesome and shinny, very rare. Good name for a pretty girl cause everyone knows, all girls are Diamonds :D
Shiny, sparkly, valuable... Why would you NOT want your last name to be Diamond? It just screams rich and famous!
That's my last name : D
More comments about Diamond

Sexy, dark, cool and mysterious, who wouldn't love this last name?
"Love that name I'm going to use it in my story, LOVE IT. Love the darkness in the last name AWESOME! "
"Picked this last name for my stage name. It's mysterious and edgy. Also, it works great with an emo or Goth persona. Plus, you can get away with just about any first name you want to. If you put it with a cute first name, it gives it the edge you may be looking for. If you put it with an obscure first name, it makes it seem a little more common.
Reminds of nick fury

I love this! My girl's name in my story right now is now Aspen Faye! Don't you just love that name?!?! It sounds so mystical, which is perfect because it's a fairy story. (Not a cheesy one- calm down. )
This is just an Amazing name! Imagine a name like that, Melrose Faye. It's an absolutely gorgeous name, I'm currently using it for one of my Characters (Melrose Faye, as listed above).
This is the last name I'm using for a girl in this Manga me and a guy on Deviantart are going to make. It's really good and suits who she is in the story.
This is a very beautiful last name! I expect to use it in one of my novels soon enough!

I'm using this for a last name for one of my characters and her sister. Margaret Kendall and Natalie Kendall. It sounds great!

More comments about Kendall

Heavenly :D Love It should put more that have something more soft sounding though.

My crush's last name is Lopez. I personally think the name Lucy Lopez sounds cool so I am using that name in a story I'm writing. Lopez is such a sexy name to have. Sebastian Lopez is also a great use of the name Lopez. Or Gabriel Lopez.

Love it, love it, it is Latin hot!

If you live in the United Kingdom, this surname has certainly been ruined for you.

Tupac Shakur all the way.

This is the hottest last name ever created. For instance I know this guy named Nick Vega. He plays the guitar, really hot.
It's simply rolls off the tongue ~
It' compares to a clean line room in order ~
A name like "Vega" you are born a "Leader". ~
Funny thing I know of know such person with this "Larger Than Life Name"
Well, Vega is one of the brightest stars there is, and I LOVE astronomical names and the letters V, X and K, so I think this one is a HUGE winner! #1 in my book.
I think it's the best last name ever. It defines hot, sexy, cool and smart.
More comments about Vega

Writing a book, this is perfect
This a great name, especially for a character in a book!
A Knight's tale! I want to change my last name to this now!

Love, Peace, Rubber Gloves!
This is Wilder's last name from the latest buzz. I actually am considering in naming my kid Wilder in the future! This is an awesome last name and/or first name!
I love this name because of Laura Ingalls Wilder! One of the best pioneers. I visited her home in Mansfield, MO. so fun and had one of the best gift shops
I really like this last name. It is perfect for a character who is known to be wild or lives with nature.

Dunbar is means a very wise family, that is what my BFF Aimee Dunbar told me. I also really like that last name because it goes good with a lot a names for people, such as; Bryant Dunbar, Heather Dunbar, Alex Dunbar, Mariah Dunbar, Jackson Dunbar, Erick Dunbar, Zoey Dunbar, etc... If you have ever seen the show Good Luck Charlie, they have an amazing last name. It is Duncan. I like that last name, it really fits people, TE HE
The name of the great African poet that made me start reading more he fought for the rights of black people and wrote great poetry
I think it's Jee-Lon Dunbar who plays in the NFL, another name you don't hear much, I like it
More comments about Dunbar

I hate justin, how can you love him?!
Jb is a loser to prove it he has a l on his forehead
Justin beiber is a terrible person and I would feel sorry for anyone besides him who had to have that lastname. JB spits on his fans, arrives 3 hours late to concerts, he's gotten drunk and pissed in the cleaning supplies of a restaurant, he forced one of his security guards to carry him, he asked a beautiful young girl who was hanging out near a pool with her friends if she was Hawaiian and when she said no he said "oh well I thought you were since you look like a beached whale" and many other terrible things! This pop star is someone I'd never want as my last name.
Gross name. Sad person. Terrible role model. He's not "misunderstood" he's just plain stupid. I like Usher... But man... He made a mistake. Should have left that kid alone in his bedroom making stupid music. We shouldn't have to deal with him. Get your act together boy.
More comments about Bieber


It sounds elegant and unique, I'm writing a story and I think this would be a great last name for the personality of the character I'm writing about. Also, it sounds really cool.

Cool.. Shows the religious unity..
I love this last name it's awesome.
Its a good last name

Not even joking you... This is an ACTUAL last name that I have seen. I saw it at a restaurant and when I looked at the receipt, it said "Server: Jake Dragonslayer" IT WAS AWESOME!
I'm writing a book and the girls name is Avril Dragonslayer and she has a brother named Hunter Dragonslayer. Shes a dark brown almost black hair color and eyes. She is tan and BEAUTIFUL! I'm not done writing it but go to and type XKassyLoveX and see if its done yet. Oh the name is Forbidden love because she loves her teacher... Or she might love her brother... Who knows I just started writing this book laugh out loud.
Even if dragons aren't real, they're still awesome and make for a great story. So a name like 'Dragonslayer' would be totally cool as a last name. :D
Okay this is awesome! Its like something from a book and dragons are my favorite animals (don't tell me they'rre not real! )
More comments about Dragonslayer

This is my last name! I felt kinda embarrassed about it when I was younger, but as I got older TONS of people would tell me they were envious of it! I'm proud of it now.
It's a cool name you don't need much more info than that.

I can't explain why but I've always liked this surname. Carter...Mrs. There are worse surnames to have I suppose.


One of my favorite movie actor's last name is this... And let me mention he is HOT!
Peggy Carter from Captain America! I LOVE Captain America. Read the comics all the time! I love Bucky too! He's my favorite. Especially when Sebastian Stan plays him. So hot.
It sounds just as cool as Parker or Hunter.

, I personally love Montoya. It just sounds right with any male name, like Adam or Ben. I also like this name because if anyone know SeaNanners, from YouTube, his name is Adam Montoya.

Love the name 'Brooke' or 'Brooks' I'm changing my last name as well.. I don't want to hear my "fathers" name anymore. Never-ever.. :) so anyway, I was thinking about Brooks or Bijou or Diamond.. They all sound so gorgeous
My first name is Brooke... so nothing against this name, but it's a common last name, and it's quite annoying having my first name be similar to a common last name... especially when my peers have it as a last name. Oh well. :P
