Can You Name the Television Show Character's Last Name?
by Becky Stigall
NBC

"And I don't even know his last name!" While these might be the lyrics of country singer, Carrie Underwood, let's hope this isn't the case for you! TV history has introduced viewers around the world to some of the most iconic characters, and unless they go by a mononym like singers Beyonce, Adele, or Rihanna, they're going to have a last name! From hit TV shows like Friends, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones, can you name the television show character's last name?

When it comes to your first and last name, your first name often takes precedence and importance over your last. While many countries in the world feature your family name last, this is not true for many countries of the Orient. Countries like Japan, China, and Korea value their family so much that the classic "last name" actually appears first. Their citizens are first recognized by their family name before their individual one. 

Alternatively in this quiz, you'll need to recognize the character by their first name before giving their last name. Popular TV families include the Seavers and Keatons of the 80s, the Tanners and Banks of the '90s, and the Bluths and Griffins of the 21st century. When it comes to recognizing some of TV's most popular characters, can you pair them to their last name? From Rachel in Friends to Walter of Breaking Bad, let's see if you'll come first in guessing these last names!
