Last name already used

When I started writing my story, I found a last name that I wanted to use. Now after a while I find out that this name has been used in stories a few times, but I didn’t know that. So is it bad if I use this name now, even though others have already used it? I don’t want it to seem like I’m just using it because others did.

It shouldn’t be a problem, it’s YOUR character after all.

That’s totally okay! It’s practically impossible to use a first/last name that hasn’t been used at least once. So it’s normal! :heartbeat:

Yeah, I realize that now. No one will be able to create the exact same character anyway. There will always be something else. Unless you are going to recreate someone’s character exactly of course.

What is the last name you wanted to use? Perhaps you can still use it, but change up the spelling or even use names that have the same meaning such as:

Examples:

Black = Coal, Ebony, Night, etc…

Black = Blaak, Blak, Blac etc…
