Ok, I have to admit - I complain about the trendy last names as first names but at the same time, I like it. I grew up with a first name for a last name (as did my mom, grandmom, great-grandmom) so I think it would be fun to reverse the trend.
I know I should probably only use a last name that’s already a family name, but I’ve ruled most of them out for various reasons.
Today I came back to a name I’ve liked before: [name]Tillman[/name]. I can find nothing about it! It hasn’t been ranked by the SSA for almost 100yrs (and even then wasn’t very popular). I have no idea what it means.
Previously, DH and I have liked [name]Miller[/name] and recently [name]Griffin[/name]. We also like [name]Rowan[/name] (I posted about that name) which also is traditionally a surname.
