My cousin did this, and it’s super cute. Her sons name is Carson 🙂 We are all a really close family and when she got married and changed her name I think it was particularly hard for her, so she wanted to pay tribute to how important her parents and family are to her life.

@Ellegee: Thank you! I had no idea and I will never consider using it now!
Thanks. Very interesting article, I apologize for my ignorance! I just had no idea.

My daughter’s name is Emersyn, which Emerson is a surname?! I Love it for a child obviously! haha
I honestly like surnames for a child. My bff’s maiden name is Jenkins and she plans to use it as a middle name for a boy. And I’m big on Thayer right now for a boy, which is also a last name. Many names originated as last names, and many girls names originated as boys back in the day. Its like clothing; it all comes full circle

i will actually use my last name (not my married name) as a first name, only if it is a boy.

my maiden name wouldn’t make a very good first name, but i totally love the idea. it’s not a family name, but my Fiance and i are planning on using the name cash for a boy!

I dislike it, but only because it is naturally biased toward a small set of “familiar” Anglo names. I don’t like how everyone will compliment baby Parker’s parents, but would be confused, if not disapproving, of a baby with a first name of Lopez, Heijder, or Arkorful. It’s quite limiting, even if it is traditional in areas with less non-Anglo white immigration (the Southeastern United States).
