Celebrity Surnames as Firsts

Inspired by a fascinating discussion thread started by our own creative berries, here are some celebrity surnames that work well as first names. Some, like Winslet and Jolie, inherently linked to the celebrity whose surname it is. Others, such as Conrad, Jordan, and Murray, don’t immediately call a celebrity to mind because of the surname’s commonness as a first name or last name. Because surnames lie outside historical gender identifications, this is another fresh source of unisex baby names.
