    **I think the argument can be made that a lot of first names are, or used to be, surnames.

    Thanks for a great thread! I live in South USA, and we don't need anyone to give our surnames some love! It isn't a trend but a way of life in existence since the beginning of the South

    Both my children have old English surnames for first names- Grantson (boy) and Wellsley (girl)...

    My favorites of all-time are Cagney, Calder, Windsor, Wetherly, and Fleming. Family names I'd use are Jessup and Gainer.
    Others I like include- Langford, Kellar, Sutton, Gatlin, Palmer, Granger, Hemingway, Remington,
    I like hearing the use of- Spencer, Carter, Griffin, Parker, Turner, Porter, Sullivan, Worth, Easton, Emerson, Ellison, Landry

    I love surnames as first names! My family has tended to have rather boring names (John, Robert, etc), so I love the idea of giving my future children surnames as first names to connect them to our family members who have passed away.

    I'm considering:
    James
    Lee
    Dawson
    Reid
    Shaw
    Cole
    Thatcher
    Pearl
    Lucas

    20-something year old woman; newlywed; name obsessed

    Currently loving:

    Bridie; Jocelyn; Winifred

    Jasper; Lochlan; Thatcher
