and i were having a bit of an argument the other day - do ponies have last names or not?
He says they just have "family" names, but not last names. His examples were the "Apple family" (eg, Applejack isn't necessarily "Applejack Apple" - Apple is her family, but not last, name) and that two-named ponies aren't necessarily Firstname Lastname (eg, Twilight Sparkle's brother is Shining Armour - so neither Sparkle nor Armour can be their family or last name).
"But", i said wryly, "What of the Cakes?" Mr, Mrs, Pound and Pumpkin - all Cakes. Clearly that's their family and
last name. And the Pie's have at least two members named canonically as well - Pinkie and (mentioned but not seen) 'Granny Pie'.
So which do you think? Or are we over-analyzing this show about pastel coloured ponies way
