Surnames as First Names

70 Surnames That Sound Adorable as First Names

Ever since the late seasons of One Tree Hill in which every baby that was born bore their mother's maiden name, I've been obsessed with the idea of last names as first names. People always point out when someone has two first names — think Michael Jordan — but I think 2016 and beyond is going to be all about the double last names (you heard it here first, people).

Read through for 70 last names that totally work as adorable first names for baby.
