How do you know they don't have the same name as you? Have you done any research? Perhaps it's just that they don't have the surname Troll like you do.

They did not need a last name. They and their kids were the only humans around. 😜
Last names and nicknames came about when there were so many humans around that they had to be differentiated from other Nathans, Jacobs, etc. Nathan Wiseman; Caleb Jacobson; Abel Sheppard; Joseph Carpenter; Saul Redbeard and Son.
