the other day i saw a poll that said i usually like surnames as first names for boys. so i searched some surnames because my brain just couldnt think (what else is new) and there were so many names that just seem so common to me, and i was so ignorant that they were first last names, though i should have known, names like keegan fit under this and this and others really surprised me.
how do you feel about surnames as first names??
do you have favorites??
i for one, like them for some of the time, but find in some cases it is just strange. if some surnames really don't work but it has meaning, i would like it used as a middle name, but otherwise i don't mind most surnames on boys and i think actually that most of them do work.
how do you all feeL?

alot of common first names are also surnames like
Some as you say aren't the best in my opinion like
but at one time it was tradition to use the mother or grandmothers maiden name as
a middle name for one or more of the sons...
I had an Uncle named David Dinnage.. Dinnage being his grandmother's maiden name.
I always kinda liked it, maybe that is where my penchant for unusual names comes from.

I am not into the "common" surnames as first names, like Tyler, Jackson, etc. I like more uncommon ones.
Some of my favorites:

Last names were actually invented because there were many people with the same name,so if there were two Lillys-one with blonde hair and the other one with black hair,they would get called Lilly Blonde Hair and Lilly Black Hair.That's why all last names have a meaning
