Best Last Names

The Top Ten Best Last Names

1 Parker

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 my main character's name is Bailey. I couldn't think of a decent last name that would suit her, but Parker is perfect! Thank you - Bethgeorge95

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.

My middle school chorus and 6th grade music teacher has the last name Parker. - SpinelliFan

2 Hunter

My crush's last name is Hunter. I might be Mrs. Hunter someday! LOVE that name! Although it doesn't go with my name that well... Still I LOVE it!

Above all the surnames listed here I think the last name " Ciudad-Real" is the most beautiful. In English it means royal city - Thelegacyofdiamonds

It's awesome I have to say!
I mean hunter is awesome I love it!
Who wouldn't take this last name!
I love it so much!
So awesome

Hunter is my mother's maiden name, she was a very strong, super intelligent kind loving woman, the kind of person I strive to be. She must have gooten this from her father..

Sexy, dark... I love it! Gives that mysterious vibe, that I personally think that is hella hot. A surname for a true man, dominant with that little dark and mysterious glint... So hot! *Dreamy sighs*

3 King

King, hmm supposed to be the number one and not three. Is one of the best last name that is unfaded. I recently made a change of last name and guess what? Is the name : King.

It would be weird if you had a first name that sounded like burger and have this as your last name.

A strong name fit for a ruler.

Cool name! It goes well with the character in my book: Margo King. Thanks so much!

4 Montana

One of my old best friends used to have this name. We don't talk much now but we have had some many fun memories together

Montana sounds like a very powerful, country name. like whoever has it has a lot of character

Montana is a beautiful name. When I was moving to Portland we drove through Montana and hearing that name reminds me of it

An awesome 49ers football player! I think this name is powerful.

5 Martinez

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

I love Martinez because I love Benito Martinez Bad bunny
I wish I'm her wife

6 Starr

I used this last name in the book I'm writing. The character is named Kristen Starr.

Thank you so much! This was perfect! Where do you come up with these awesome last names! Do you think Ari starr sounds good?

It's really cute and a bit sexy and mysterious at the same time. Love it!

I think this is amazing last name. Thanks I am using that last name for my short story!

7 Black

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.

The funny thing is, I can't stop thinking about Sirius Black, from Harry Potter! Such a lovely story and a shame he died... I'm writing a fanfiction on Harry Potter and I'm going with the name Leah, for the first name and I still need help on finding a last name and possibly a middle name. Can you please help?

8 Dragonslayer

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 concur. This is a real last name. My divorce decree didn't include me taking my maiden name back (long story), so I'll have to petition the courts to change it back. Debating changing it to Dragonslayer, seems how I have to do all of that work anyway.

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.

This is the best name because Dragon is a great name and the slayer helps it this sould be first

9 Smith

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'm using this name Smith in my story and it is spectacular. My character's name is Serenity Smith. This name is an Australian/Oceania name. This I know because I'm Australian. This name has a nice ring to it but it also derived from blacksmith's in the 13 century. So if you were a blacksmith, your last name was Smith. So I think this is the number one name to go with. When you are creating stories, Rodriguez and Martinez aren't too popular and should be voted like 4th or 5th although they are great exotic and Spanish names.

10 Westbrook

Thanks for giving me this unique last name! I am creating a new book about a girl who's only friend is a sister, their triplet dies, and, if she doesn't make her grades yet, will be sent off to Weston's Military School. They hang out in the Bunting Woods, where all three sisters played all the time when they were little. Then they find a dragon and figure out that Courtney can talk to dragons (like Eragon, lol) and Destiny can communicate with the other dragon worlds! I made her name Courtney and Destiny Westbrook.And so they both end up entering a whole other world. Sounds cool, right? I don't know the name of the book yet, but I think this is going to work out! Thanks for the last name

This last name was just what I needed, 'cause I'm horrible with last names. It shows elegance and class, which is the opposite of what my characters (siblings) actually are, and that just adds on to the comedy that I've already put in it.

Resonates so much class. Can be used for a businessman, adventurer, hero etc. It's basically everything on lock.

I'm using it for a last name for my character in my story her name is Liberty Westbrook she was adopt by a great family after she was born. She doesn't find out until her sixteen birthday. I' m not done but it's going good so far.

The Contenders

11 Levy

I was looking at this website for a character called Levi and... Levi Levy

Sounds like the jeans brand. If used properly, sexy, dangerous, cool, mysterious

This is such a good last name for a sweet teacher.
PS: I am using this name for my book

I really like Levi as a first name, but it actually doesn't sound so bad as a last! Charlotte Levi, could be my characters name. I like that

12 Kirby

Kirby is a Nintendo character, but that's because of a Lawyer that represented Nintendo in a lawsuit case

Kirby is a Nintendo character. I think Yoshi would be a good name too.

This is literally my last name. I came to this site to find names for my novel and when this popped up I was surprised. It means "church settlement " and "dark son".

Laugh out loud epic last name but what this is not from Mario what a N00B.

13 Diamond

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!

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.

I really like it because it's like the person is valuable and meaningful! So cool, I'm writing a story and the main character's name is Tess Diamond. Absolutely LOVE this name!

Your first name is kingsley then your last name diamond. Then your nickname would be King Diamond lol - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

I forgot to mention king diamond is lead vocalist in mercyful fate - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

14 Valentine

I'm Writing a story, and I think Valentine is a great last name! What do you think of Leia Valentine?

Cat valentine so cute

It just sounds beautiful, and it goes great with the name Katherine, don't you guys and girls agree with me? So come on let's here for the last name Valentine! :-)

Thanks for the tip! My characters called Roxy Valentine. It's about a girl who slips out of the popular group and teams up with her soulmate (a new girl) Alison Wilcox. They become such best friends until Alison has to move away. Roxy doesn't know why. She runs away to find Alison to find that she is dying of lung cancer and only has a month left to live. I think I'll end that Roxy finds out her mum's pregnant after Alison dies and they call the baby Alison.

15 Perfect

I couldn't picture this name on anyone

I'm sorry but this should not be on the list

You look perfect tonight!

Well I just need this surname. Hahaa

16 Johnson

It just fits with just about every name.

Mrs. Johnson was my favorite teacher! Every time I heard her name I jumped in happiness

This is sensible and good and lots of people I know have this last name.

Johnson's are the best. All the way to #1 baby. Our clan's are global and have no cultural/racial boundaries.

17 Angel

I love that last name too! Reminds me of the actor Asher Angel. Also thanks for this suggestion, you helped me find the last name for my character Alex Angel for my story.

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

My name should be Miss Angel. Imagine that, picking up the post in the morning and seeing one addressed to you... Miss R Angel, it would be for me! How cool, though... Angel=Cool!

It feels so soft when you say it, like your on comfy clouds sleeping.

18 Faye

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).

It's a wonderful last name! I'm using it for my character, Remina Faye!

This name sounds amazing, but it sounds better on a girl than it would on a boy.

19 Rodriguez

The last name of the girl I have a crush on since forever is Rodriguez :) so I can think of a better last name than this, plus, it sounds so exotic, like it's not really American, I'm just in love with Rodriguez

I like this because it is a very interesting last name. Although there are other good last names, I like this one the absolute best.

People don't realise how popular this game is. Comes from Spanish and then that got moved to Latin America and Mexico.

I have a friend with the last name Rodriguez! He's Russian! It's not a very common name either

20 Osbourne

Reminds me of the lady who wrote that VERY repetitive Magic Treehouse series

I noticed a lot of last names in this list are the last names of rock stars, Osborne is a bad ass name because of Mr. Ozzy Osbourne.

Harry Osbourne

This make's me think of spider man

21 Stark

Tony Stark, on of the most loved people in the world. Obviously anyone with this last name would be in for an awesome time both in and out of school!

The most AMAZING name ever! All I can think IRONMAN!

Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good.

Tony Stark is great, but Arya Stark

22 Silva

My surname is Silva too haha... quite a popular surname in places like Brazil and Portugal.

I just think it's different but not too crazy as to be unrealistic. It's definitely a pretty last name.

My dad is from Brazil so my last name is Silva. Its very popular in Brazil and Portugal.

Yolo my name is Victoria Silva. that's why I like this name haha

23 Bell

The person who is writing that story, I am writing a book too and the second main characters name is ALSO Kimberley Bell! Sorry, I just thought that was really cool we had the same idea.

Anyone with the last name Bell is pretty much like the coolest person on the face of the earth

I'm in the process of writing a story in which on of my main characters is a Kimberly Bell, I adore this name!

Anyone with the last name Bell is pretty much the coolest person on earth

Come on guys. It's Niall Horan. Do we really need to doubt the awesomeness of this last name?

Yeah, I'm going to own this name really soon

Joke:who would like some Horan juice?

25 O'Halloran

Because I have a iPhone 7 and I need a name but I found a name that is Octavion lucas O'Halloran

My daughter's teacher's name is Angela O'Halloran. You would think that it is not a very popular name but I guess it is out there. I quite like the last name too.

My daughter says Mrs O'Halloran is a very nice teacher and helps her with her work. She is her favourite teacher.

Sounds like a great name for a Halloween Themed character it reminds me of Halloween - Lunala

Sounds like a good name for a prince

30 Clark

How is Clark a cute nome? Stop being sick. Clark is a badass and frightening name.

Is that even a name?

44 Curtis

I'm trying to name a side character. What name goes well with Lou? Plus it has to be kind of a unisex last name because she has a brother. It can't be anything cute or pretty like Lou Rose or Lou Love or Lou Angel.

Kimberly Curtis, heck yeh! - Magenta_Flame

It's a nice one! I love it

That's my last name!

45 Amaya

I don't even know why I love this, but I was coming up with a last name for one of my oc named magnus then well BOOM, Magnus Amaya

It's of Japanese origin and means "Night Rain". It's my last name and I absolutely love it because it's my two favorite things as my last name! It also would really be cool for a story character's last name because it's kind of mysterious and exotic. Hope you like the meaning at least!

Beautiful name means night rain. But it's actually a first name.

It's a Japanese surname not a first name.

46 Wilder

I love this last name, I'm going to use it because it sounds like someone wild, crazy and fun and it suits the character I'm going to write about... AHH! I JUST LOVE IT NOW! Madeline Kristy Wilder umm maybe that I think about it ill change it to Madeline Wild

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 read a book called "Water and the Wild". It was really good. It's my favorite book, and three of the main character's last name was Wilder. I suggest that you read this book, and if you want to use this last name you should use it in a sort of magical setting.

47 Carr

This is my great grandma's last name (when she was alive) I love it so much

48 Ashwood

Ashwood is such a cool like badass sexy mysterious name I love it thank you

I think it's great

This is awesome

Sounds so gangsta lmao!

49 Swift

TAYLOR SWIFT! I love her! She is the awesome awesome person in the
WORLD! Haha. Please comment and like!



I love the last name Swift, not just becuase of Taylor Swift, but because it sounds so smooth and graceful. The problem is that if you tried to use it in a book, for example, the readers will most likely be like, The author just got it from Taylor Swift, or HEY! Remember Taylor Swift? And will never get it out of their head

This is a beautiful last name. It reminds me of wind or flowing water (it just kind of sounds like nature-related) not because of Taylor Swift. I like Taylor Swift, but it's annoying that everyone immediately connects this to Taylor Swift. Like, hello, why does no one flip out at the last name Goodall? Or Hamilton? It's not like Taylor Swift has done something big and life-changing for the world.

50 Newman

If a guy has this last name, his first name is probably long forgotten. Newman just replaces the first name. People love to say it. It sounds cool and results in the default greeting "Hello, Newman. " There are a few famous people with this name like Paul, Randy, and Ryan Newman.

Sounds pretty cool. I'm writing a book about JTF2 and I'll given one of my characters this name.

My uncles name is Garry Newman

Not to mention Garry Newman :P
