I'm sure there are many, many alien races who simply only have one name. And I think in a few TOS novels, there were *humans* who went by that custom. Weren't there?
I think the TMP novelization said something about last names going out of fashion on Earth and only very few chose to have one.
The TMP novel is a memory I'm trying to repress, thank you very much...

Although I think it was only the (gack ) 'New Human' movement which engaged in that practice, isn't that right?
