    I used to love using 'LaBou'
    but then I met someone with the last name 'Labauve', pronounced the same as the former and so now I feel that it would be strange to use it.

    fuuuuuu-

    As a writer, I find myself looking for really good names, first and last, for the characters I create. Besides having a look through Baby Names books (and my unusual names copy was terrific) I flip through ye olde Phone Book for surnames.

    Camera
    Lamp
    Desk
    Chair
    Pen
    Computer

    Wait... I'm just naming things I see...
    (I love lamp! aahahaha... Shut it.)

    But seriously folks, this is an awesome list to pop in on when trying to find a last name, which is what I'm doing right now. :)

    Awesome! :)

    Hey, that's really funny. Thanks for the chuckle. But on a serious note, when my Grant Aunt was born and they needed a name for her her older siblings looked around (one of the boys, I believe) and saw the radio. Brand name Zenith. Guess what they named her? :-P

    I normally use Mortiz or Lanier.
    But when I get bored of using the same names I just hit the keyboard and see if I can make a name out of that, always works :mrgreen:.

    Wow! '09 thread (blows dust off)

    I usually get my names from: historical figures, tv shows, movies, books, even other games - heros, villains, and sometimes even game programmers!

    Crowe - SIERRA GAMES programmer (Mark Crowe)
    Murphy - SIERRA GAMES programmer (Scott Murphy)

    Less -STAR WRECK (Star Trek parody) book series character (Admiral Ruth Less)

    Bains - SIERRA GAME character (Jessie Bains - Police Quest 1& 2)
    Watts - SIERRA GAME character (Laura Watts - Police Quest 1)
    Morales - SIERRA GAME character (Patricia Morales - Police Quest 3)

    Burns - JEM cartoon character (Sheila "Jetta"Burns)
    Phillips - JEM cartoon character (Mary "Stormer" Phillips)
    Maza - GARGOYLES cartoon character (Elisa Maza)

    Campbell - BRITANNIC movie character (Vera Campbell)

    Tepes - HISTORY (Vlad Tepes aka. "Vlad the Impaler") 1431-1476
    Bathory - HISTORY (Elizabeth Bathory aka. "Blood Countess") 1560-1614

    Look around and get inspired, even if your Sim doesn't look close to the people who inspired your name. :^)
    ...AND WASH YOUR DING-DANG HANDS!

    There's a lot of good suggestions here, so I'll just throw this in since you were asking for a variety of cultures...

    Benally is a common Navajo surname. I think it has a really nice sound to it, too.

    Oh, and if you live in the cheapest Bridgeport apartment, one of your neighbors is an American Indian, Takala Yazzie. I forget what tribe her name comes from, though. I'm leaning toward either Navajo or Lakota.
