Joe Louis the boxer? Although I don't think Louis was actually his surname.

I bet we can't find a single boys name that has never been used as a surname.

Beware - Noah is in the midst of a huge upward trend. I know of 3 born in 2012 and they're all in different parts of the country.

Noah as a surname

Hope DH isn't googling the names!

Gold all of those can be surnames. Noah isn't very common, but Travis and Fergus are more surnamey than first namey I would say.

I agree with amck though, pretty much every name can be a surname as well, your DH is either winding you up or he's a bit odd.

I think your other half is winding you up - He started off with saying no surnames meaning those names that are predominantly surnames but now becoming used as forenames but actually when you think about it lots of names that we think of as mainly first names are sometimes used as surnames - that's where Alexander and Andrew etc I think fit into, whereas Riley and Harrison fit into the first group. He now knows it's annoying you so is seeing it a personal challenge to find someone with a surname for anything you mention. I bet he hasn't really vetoed them all. (and Oliver is a surname too smile)

However, what about:
