The -S Surname Master List

October 13, 2021 Namerology 2 Comments
Master Lists of baby names that fit a style

For full-tilt surname style, you can’t beat an -s ending. The -s is a fashion amplifier, accentuating the gruffness of a name like Briggs, the urbanity of Eames, and the old-school formality of Jennings. These baby names offer a fresh sound with traditional roots, and their popularity is soaring. The category leader Brooks is now a top-100 name.

At first glance, the options in this genre may seem limitless. Tens of thousands of different surnames tend in -s. But if you start browsing a surname list, you’ll find that the style target is surprisingly elusive. Thomas sounds like a first name. Franks sounds like a plural. Bass sounds like a fish. And thousands of other choices are too complicated, too unfamiliar, or simply don’t sound fashionable.

How can you find the -s surnames that actually work? We have you covered. Namerology’s hand-curated master list collects every single promising -s surname option, a total of 175 possibilities. If you love the style, you will find what you’re looking for here.

    Or, how to make your baby sound like a privileged, preppy rich kid with just one letter!

      The style used to be preppy, but it has taken a turn for the cowboy. Names like Rawlings, Briggs, Collins and Riggins map onto country music territory. Even Brooks, which used to signal Brooks Brothers, is now more likely to signal Garth Brooks.
