* '''Deconstructed''': All animal characters have the last name as their species, meaning that all bunnies will have the last name of Bunny, whether their part of the same family or not. This makes meeting other animals of the same species very awkward, since nobody could tell whether their related to somebody of the same species or not, which made mating incredibly difficult. And dating outside of your species was frowned upon in this society either because it will mess up the naming system, or HotSkittyOnWailordAction doesn't produce viable children in the setting, or both. This leads to several generations of inbreeding and confused identities. Eventually, it got hard to tell one member of a species from another, and all the animals eventually went mad.
** Humans rule sapient animals like slaves, and deny them the right to have differentiated last names as a means to strip them of heritage and pride.

** After a successful revolt, having such a last name traces ones heritage to the revolutionaries, and is considered a great honor.
