Ellis - both my boys have Ellis as a middle name as its a family surname.

I know two young boys called Cooper, a Lennon (Lenny) and a Harrison.

To be honest I can't say I am a fan of the surname as first name trend, and for some reason I think if it's chosen for one child then their siblings' names should be like surnames too otherwise it could look a bit odd. Works better for boys' names too.

There is a mumsnet hatred of the surname as a first name thing. It's a tradition in many parts of the country. Boys that I knew at school in Scotland had names like Bryce, Bruce, Kirk, Lawson, Wilson, Allan, Campbell, Cameron, Forbes, Murray, Maxwell and Nelson.
