Default What is Larson's last name?

Does anyone know what Larson's last name is? I know for Pierre it's DuPont.

I kinda thought Larson was his last name, it sounds more like a last than a first name. But I don't know if he has any other names, if I remember correctly Larson is the only one we ever hear.

I think so too. It's more of Larson a last name. Maybe in TR:A the storyline will be more in detail, including on the characters.

Yep, Larson IS his last name.
What his first name is, is the mystery...

Any name ending with -son is a Scandinavian name... It originates from when people were named after their fathers. So the children of a guy called Lars would be called Larsson or Larsdaughter.
They still have this custom in Iceland and the Faroese Islands.

That's very interesting, especially because several other languages have the same sort of tradition-- I know Hebrew and Japanese both have it, and that's only the ones I know at all. There's only like, twelve original names in the whole world, everything else just has a son of/daughter of suffix

I think of Larson as having a short first name, like Bill or something. Either that or he has a really embarrassing first name so he just goes by his last^^.

I think it might be Lars just like the guy from heavy weights the movie.

My last name must be original then, it doesn't end with -son or -daughter [nor with the most common Finnish suffixes, -nen or -la]

Lars Larson? Umm... hope not
