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.
Given that the TMP was the first of the numbered novels, I think it's safe to say a great deal about it has been contradicted since then.
Thing is, it was actually written by Roddenberry...
