Looking for an unusual name choice for your baby? These cute surnames as first names would make a great choice and you’re pretty much guaranteed there won’t be another one in your child’s class!

Characters like Ellis Grey in Grey’s Anatomy, Quinn in Glee, Lane in Gilmore Girls, Flynn Rider in Tangled, Kingsley in Harry Potter are all great examples of how these names can strike a chord – and don’t forget real life stars like Cameron Diaz, Taylor Swift, the late actor Chadwick Boseman, and Blake Lively.

Wondering who else chose a surname as a first name? Let’s take a look at some notable picks: David and Victoria Beckham chose Harper for their daughter, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon chose Monroe for their daughter, Jude Law and and Sadie Frost chose Rafferty for their son, Jessica Alba and Kevin Costner both have sons named Hayes, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd chose Lincoln for their daughter, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr chose Flynn for their son, and President Joe Biden has a granddaughter named Finnegan.

While some of these surnames as first names have become regular features on the popular baby name lists, such as Kennedy, Finley, Harper, Mackenzie, Brady, Parker, and Harlow, there are many more that have yet to hit the mainstream. Take a look below and find some gems for your new arrival!
