    Tomlin Surname

    In the fantasy I'm writing, there will be a character name Tomlin, and I need a last name.

    NOT Johansson! I don't think it goes well! Preferably I'd like it to mean something like 'evil' or 'dark', because the character isn't sure about whether he's 'good' or not.

    Also I need one for Gregoria. Her last name should mean 'loyal' or 'until the end' or something like that.

    Also, no names that have the 'lil' syllable in them--too reminiscent of the actress Lily Tomlin.
