Cool Last Names You Wish Were Your Own

List Rules
Vote up the last names you think are the coolest.

What's in a name? While most of us don't choose our last name, if we could, would we change it? And if so, would we change it to something simple like "Smith" or "Miller"? Or would we opt for something a little more personalized like "Bonecrusher" or "Spider-Man"?

Take a look at the common last names below and vote up the ones that have a nice ring to them, whether it's because they're associated with someone you like, they sound nice, or you wish it was your last name. Vote down the ones that are boring, sound awful, or would bum you out to have on your driver's license.
