In some cultures, a surname , family name , or last name is the portion of one's personal name that indicates their family, tribe or community. Practices vary by culture. The family name may be placed at either the start of a person's full name, as the forename , or at the end; the number of surnames given to an individual also varies. As the surname indicates genetic inheritance , all members of a family unit may have identical surnames or there may be variations; for example, a woman might marry and have a child, but later remarry and have another child by a different father, and as such both children would have different surnames.
Widespread popular and scholarly interest in the history of family names is then highlighted in an account of the major family name dictionaries. The importance of regional and localized study, for our understanding of regional variation in surname patterns, is stressed, and such analysis is suggested as being the next logical step following the work of the English Surnames Series. Multidisciplinary approaches to surname study are also introduced, through a summary of work on DNA and surname inheritance, demography, and local history. Finally, a case is made for the future creation and statistical study of large surname databases in order to advance our knowledge of surname changes, development, and distribution.

Чем могу служить, сеньор? - Он говорил нарочито шепеляво, а глаза его внимательно осматривали лицо и фигуру Беккера. Беккер ответил по-испански: - Мне нужно поговорить с Мануэлем. Загорелое лицо консьержа расплылось еще шире.

В какой бы стране вы ни находились, во всех учреждениях действует одно и то же правило: никто долго не выдерживает звонка телефонного аппарата. Не важно, сколько посетителей стоят в очереди, - секретарь всегда бросит все дела и поспешит поднять трубку. Беккер отбил шестизначный номер.
