Valley books when I was younger and that was the two main characters last name. I just loved it! Then on the first day of school in 7th grade I saw a girl with the last name and decided I wanted to be her friend only because her last name was Wakefield! She later became one of my best friends and it's funny to us now.
My last name is Thomas and it isn't that bad, but it's so commonly used as a first name I feel like Alyssa Thomas is ridiculous. Doesn't really flow, doesn't have a ring to it and it sounds so masculine next to my first name. I don't know why I dislike it so much. Although I have come to appreciate a bit more because I adore the actor Tom Hiddleston. He's made me come around a bit to the name as a boys name, but I still dislike it as a last name, especially for me.
I would definitely suggest you read the books. When I first watched the show I had no intention of reading the books because they are all 1000+ pages and it's adult fantasy which isn't really my style. I tend to stick with young adult dystopian, supernatural, or classic literature like Jane Austen. So I was completely content with just watching the show, but a few things happened that I didn't expect. Number one, I loved the show so much! I needed more of it. Also, so many fans of the book series convinced me to read the books. It's kind of like Harry Potter in my eyes. You can only get so much from the movies. The books are a whole new experience.
I was worried about not being able to keep track of the characters and plot lines, but it was surprisingly easy. It did help that I enjoyed every bit of reading it so I wasn't bored at all, never had to fight to keep reading. I watched the first two seasons before reading the books and I found that was actually really enjoyable because I knew what was going to happen and reading about it was exciting. I did read the third book before the third season (which is airing right now) and I am so happy I did because so much goes on and it's such an amazing book.
So I would definitely recommend reading the books especially if you are a reader. There's so much more about the characters you get from the books. Some wonderful quotes (including the one in my signature - it was so hard choosing one!). Also, the books are so pro-feminism it's amazing.
If you do plan on reading the books I would definitely recommend at least reading book 3 (A Storm of Swords) before watching the 3rd season because that was such a great experience and I would have definitely regretted it if I had seen the season before reading it. Oh, and if you don't want to be spoiled on anything avoid googling ANYTHING!
And feel free to message me any time about the books or show.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”

I'm another Darling lover! My mum has friend's with that last name and whenever she talks about them she always calls them by their first and last name. Oh it's so sweet! Also Bronte is probably one of my top names.
I kind of like strong English last names since that is what I have at the moment my last name is the most common in the town that I'm from, but I'd quite like to have an English last name when/if I get married.
