Does "Christopher Lawrence" sound more like a first name and a middle name, or a given name and a surname?

Christopher Lawrence sounds like a first name followed by a surname to me. Some middle names that I like are

Christopher Allan Lawrence
Christopher David Lawrence
Christopher James Lawrence
Christopher Noah Lawrence
Christopher Jacob Lawrence
Christopher Elijah Lawrence
Christopher Lee Lawrence
Christopher Jasper Lawrence
Christopher Mason Lawrence
Christopher Jaden Lawrence
Christopher Todd Lawrence
Christopher Damon Lawrence
Christopher Caden Lawrence
Christopher Bo Lawrence
Christopher Heath Lawrence
Christopher Caleb Lawrence
Christopher Ethan Lawrence
Christopher Ryan Lawrence

Of course you can always switch the names around. Hope I helped!

I think Lawrence works well for either. It really just depends on how you use it. If it is a middle name, then he wouldn't be called "Christopher Lawrence" very often, and probably only by family members. If it is a last name, again he wouldn't be called by his full name very often unless he was in a professional/school setting.

I think Lawrence sounds like a surname in this context. BUT... my brother has a middle name that actually is a surname. My mom's maiden name :) and I think it works well as a mn.
