The importance of surnames in fantasy settings

There is no denying the importance of surnames in fantasy settings. They are a common tool for character differentiation and they can provide a historical context for the characters and their world. Surnames can also be used as a way to create tension within families or clans, or as a way to show social differences between characters. In short, they are an important part of any fantasy setting and should not be overlooked.
