In other news, I never realized how many fictional characters don't have last names before I started tag wrangling for the Archive of Our Own. A whole lot of fantasy series don't use family names for anyone but nobles, and some don't even do that. This has some historical basis, but it makes things kind of complicated when you need a way to keep characters from different fandoms straight. And that's without even getting into names from mythology. Almost all of the fandoms that I've been wrangling have at least one character with only one name, and in a few, nobody has more than one name. So you end up needing things like "Anubis (God)" and "Anubis (Goa'uld)" or "Hobbes (Calvin and Hobbes) for the official versions that the filters use to sort stories. So I've been having fun with that.
