Everyone in lotr is sometimes referred to by their parents like "frodo son of Drogo Legolas son of Thranduil Gimli son of gloin Meriadoc son of Saradoc" Hobbits for some reason divided themselves into clans, I'm not entirely sure why.. But in the cases of elves and dwarves the kept such records of their family that they didn't really need last names? Dunno. Aragorn has one though, he said his clan name was to be strider in elvish which is: Telcontar.

Yes, the breelanders have last names but for some reason none others do.. Eomer was called Eomer Eadig, but Eowen doesn't really have a last name. Nor does Saruman or Beregond or Ioleth. It's odd. And Stormcrow is not Gandalf's last name, it's a sort of epithet like if someone were to say Klaus Researcher Extraodrinaire, Researcher Extrodinaire obviously not being his last name.
