Last Names First


Using a last name as a first name has recently become quite popular, and for some good reasons. First, family names can often be converted into androgynous first names suitable for both girls and boys. And for those parents particularly proud of their family heritage an inactive surname found in their family trees can be used as is or slightly modified for their child's first name.

Finally, there is the numbers game: when surnames are considered as possibilities the potential baby names increases dramatically as any phone book can attest.
