    Surname help

    I'm totally stuck at what to name this family.

    Two brothers and their immediate families:

    Jeffrey "Jeff" (Older Brother), Suzanne (Jeff's Wife) Luke and Mara (Their Kids)

    Bradley "Brad" (Younger Brother), Rachel (Brad's Wife), Seth (Their Son)


    Any thoughts? I'm terrible at surnaming! Thanks!

    Well, do they have a heritage? They sound American, so standard American surnames would work.

    I tend to look up surnames and pick something that sounds like the family. Or I make something up that's completely random. Occasionally, I steal from other books and tweak it.
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.
