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.

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
More comments about Martinez

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.

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!

A name like "Vega" you are born a "Leader". ~
Funny thing I know of know such person with this "Larger Than Life Name"
This is the hottest last name ever created. For instance I know this guy named Nick Vega. He plays the guitar, really hot.
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 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

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.

Hicks is a awesome last name. I know someone with the last name hicks and he's the awesomest guy I know. Hicks just sounds kind of edgy. It would be a good last name for a book character.
That's my maiden name and no negativity growing up. My brother's nickname was Trixie because of it however. Pretty fitting.
My boyfriends surname, and we can't be better fit to each other. I love it, his names Leo Hicks. Nice ring to it right? Even though I hate marriage, even Cass Hicks would sound awesome.

This is my friend's last name, it would be an awesome name for a book!

Dean and Sam Winchester, the most adorable and hilarious bro ever!
Perfect for a story character who's rich and always very composed. Maybe a little detached.
Reminds me of Sarah Winchester, the woman who married third president of Winchester rifles (crazy lady, did you see her mansion?! Look it up! ). (I'm just that kind of person, that I don't automatically think of Sam and Dean. ) You can use Winchester in a ghost story as a nod to Sarah.

Love it!
Sam and Dean Winchester! Deans the hottest, funniest, awesomest person ever! Love that surname

Ciel Phantomhive rocks! XDD I seriously love this anime, I mean I want to change my last name to this!
"Yes, my lord. " Ha ha Ciel Phantomhive. Why do you have such an awesome sounding last name?
I was actually looking for a name for a character loosely based off of Ciel... Why did his name have to be taken. Hmm still need a British sounding name for my protagonist. And one for the demon in my story... Alexa_______ and the demon Felix________ argg Black Butler took all the good names...

I literally have the name River Brooks. Seriously you don't know where that gets me in life. I mea. People go "you're kidding right? " Nope.
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
More comments about Brooks

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

I think I've watched some sort of Japanese schoolgirl anime show and with a protagonist who had this last name. I think it has a very nice ring to it, and it sounds pretty with almost any name. If you are writing a story with a Japanese character, this is a great name to use!

This would be THE WORST last name to have in 6th in middle school. You'd totally be teased and locked in lockers. I shudder to think of it. If you're last name is Gayheart, you're probably a cool person but I pity what you had to have gone through in high school.
I think it weird it like "hi my name is john gay heart and no my heart is not gay! "
Who says gay is bad? Oh yeah... Bigots

Best last name, but if someone found out you changed your name to this you would be considered very very weird.
