Best Last Names


The Top Ten

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.

I like it because it’s not a bad second name and it’s simple

2 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!

Best last name ever.

3 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.

4 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..

5 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).

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.

I like this name it fits my character perfectly,but I’m changing the spelling of the name because I feel it will suit my character better. My character’s name is Aster Fei.

6 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!

7 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!

Thank You. This was all I needed to END my story.❤️ Does the name Max Smith sounds good?

8 King

A strong name fit for a ruler.

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

I insisted upon meeting the man (who would eventually become my husband) when I heard his name: Randal Valiant King, II! Isn't that the strongest, most regal, manly name you've ever heard?! Lol. Now that we're trying for a baby, I've discovered that our last name is a bit difficult to pair with a first name. No nouns work- Cash King sounds like a title loan joint, Lyric King- recording studio, Parker King- valet service, and the most tragic: Roman King... That was always one of my favorites, being we both love history (especially ancient Roman history), but Roman Valiant King is just too cheesey! Lol. Regardless, the surname King is quite a powerful one, and it goes well with nearly any traditional first name (like Marilyn Audra-Lee King or Roderick Valiant King).

I love this last name! I love Seven Deadly Sins and one of the sins' name is King! (I think he is the cutest one) I am going to make a character in my story the last name King!

9 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

First name= Melanie <3
Last name= Martinez <3

My last name! - Swiftdawn

The Contenders

11 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

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

My favorite teacher was a Mrs. Johnson too!

12 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

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.

Westbrook is also an nba Allstar's name (Russel Westbrook)

13 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

14 Rose

I love this last name its beautiful and it screams nice and sweet also I used it on my story her names Destiny Rose and when I found it it just clicked so I knew I liked the name!

I love this last name, its me and my mums. It's beautiful and elegant and just an all around great name! Nothing would make me want to change it!

I LOVE this last name! Who wouldn't? It's after one of the most beautiful flowers EVER! (In my opinion). It's just so classical, but at the same time modern. So cute for anything, Surname, Middle name, and Last name!

It's just a beautiful last name, I also like it because it's named off of my favorite plant. It might be common, but for me, it's very, exotic. Also, for my book, it will probably fit for anyone's first or last name

15 Angel

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.

I love this surname it goes with nearly all first names! (because you wouldn't want to be called angela angel) - LAURENRL

16 Levy

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

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

Haha, who ever said Charlotte Levy, my name is Charlotte. I'm actually writing a book too. Good luck with yours!

I love this last name, I hope it’s my future one

17 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'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.

Oh my Gosh I really, really, really wish this was my last name! It is so fabulous! When I was nine years old I had the most incredible music teacher, and we played a song called "Dragonslayer" that I loved. I love it because it is so cool and it reminds me of my old music teacher.

Ok... is that a real thing? - InsertCleverName

18 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

Is Marina Swift a good name?
If not, too late, it's already in the story. - lovefrombadlands

19 Silva

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

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

20 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.

Great last name for a Mexican

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!

There is this girl in my grade I really like. Her last name is Clark, and she is the greatest friend you could ever have. Especially if they're a combination of smart, nice, pretty and funny.

I like this last name, I find it pretty cute for a guy.

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

This might just be my favorite "common" surname. It is short, simple, and easy to say and spell.

26 Osbourne

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.

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

Harry Osbourne

This make's me think of spider man

29 Winchester

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

Heroic and cool. This is it.

Liam Dunbar? Teen Wolf? Come on people, this name is just too hot to handle.

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

My name is Holly and Holly Dunbar doesn't really sound good. But Dunbar sounds like a good name for an elephant or some kind of big animal.

That's the name of a school I know.

40 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.

If you take out the "all" it would be Horan laugh out loud sry just had to put that out there because Niall Horan is bæ

41 Lipowski

Infinity_Fever stop getting all protective, it's annoying. You probably wouldn't care if it was your crush's name, and no one bloody cares if it is. You don't write a comment about it, get all angry with the one underneath and begin a rant by starting "This is my crush's last name." Like really? Who give a damn? You're just a love-struck, hormonal teenage girl. And if you're not, you sure sound it.

Sounds like a drug

Love this name because it's my crush's last name - Infinity_Fever

This sounds like a startup drug with weed and the heriown you, I sounds like a dope yo sandwich

This is my crush's last name. It's so much fun to say and if you are going to talk about drugs at least spell things right and make sure things make sense. - Infinity_Fever

It's like Charles Augustus Magnuson. From Sherlock.

My last name and I must say I wouldn't change if I could. Sounds great with almost any name (for me it's Petra Magnusson) and it sounds interesting and somehow intelligent.

It reminds me of Magnus in tmi.
