The Best Surnames as First Names for Boys and Girls
Last names as first names have a become a popular trend recently for baby names! The idea has been around for decades, but as of late, more and more couples have been looking for something different when it comes to deciding on a baby name.
Historically, last names, or surnames, have gotten adopted as first names as well. And when thinking about this, there really are so many classic ideas for boys and girls like Grant, Madison, and James.
But there’s also some really cute modern last names like Flynn, Shea, and Auden that also make great first names.
Cameron Diaz, Flynn Ryder, and Anderson Cooper are all names that have this style and vibe, and personally, I really like this use of last names as first names!
And so I created this list! And let me tell you, it was so much fun putting these names together for you today. 🙂
So if you want some fresh, new, cool ideas for baby names, this is the list for you!
Last Names as First Names for Boys
These are some of the absolute BEST name ideas for boys.
Some are oh so classic and timeless, and others are more trendy and popular if that’s more your vibe.
Personally, I love Elliot, Cooper, and Lincoln, but see which ones stand out for you!
Last Names as First Names for Girls
Of all the names I could find for girls, these are among the cutest and prettiest that I think you’ll love.
I really like Luna, Harlow, and Everly, but some names like Greer and Lara are so unique and rare that I also gravitate towards those.
Which ones are your favorite?
Gender Neutral Surnames for First Names
These name ideas are gender neutral, and I personally like these the best.
I love Emerson, Holland, and Ryder, but there are so many other cute choices from this list!
Final Thoughts – Surnames as First Names
Ultimately, you want to pick a baby name that resonates with you and your hubby. Surnames are a totally cool idea, but you want to make sure it’s the perfect choice for your baby.
Make sure to save your favorites, maybe even think of some middle names that could go perfectly with these name ideas from today’s list.
Or maybe combine names from this list if you can’t decide on a favorite.
Something like Madison James or Hunter Rhodes would make really strong names.
Either way, I hope this list gave you some new ideas that brought you closer to the perfect name for your beautiful baby.
