Is this in the game already or a feature that is "coming soon"?

Last names are part of the Legacy feature I think. I have no idea about anything else about it.

You may be refering to the Legacy system that is in place and you have access to after you finish chapter 1 of your class quests. It let's you choose a surname for all your charatcers, though like a character name, only one user can have that name per server.

If you're refering to actually being able to choose a last name at character creation, then no it does not exist, though I wish it would. It would help with people who want to use a specific name, but because they came in to late can't because it's been locked by another user who chose it first. I always wonder why developers off MMOs don't implement this.

Yep, once you finish chapter 1 you can choose a last name but it applies to all characters on that server.

Last names are part of the Legacy System which should be "live". You need to finish Act 1 with any character on your account to enable the Legacy System content.

The Legacy content tab is either in the character sheet, or the window that displays the codex (it is a multi-tabbed window). I kind of forget exactly where it is, sorry.

It applies to all the characters on the server? That's... lame. What if I want to be Darth Evil Meanie on one toon and Master Super McNiceguy on another?

I was hoping for something more like EQ2's naming system.

It's because the Legacy system has much more in store down the road. It's not just a "last name" system, that is just the tip of the iceberg for what is to come.

Bah, if someone takes the name I want before I can get to it it will ruin the game me. Grrrrr.
