** Jake the Dog, and in a bizarre occurrence, Finn the Human. According to the creator, Finn is named "Finn the Human" because he is supposedly the LastOfHisKind. Note that these aren't their surnames - they're brothers, as Finn was adopted by Jake's parents, so they'd probably have the same surname if it applied to Dogs in the Land of Ooo.
