Pluralizing Tips

It's that time of the year! It is time to brush up on your seventh grade grammar and re-learn how to pluralize last names for all of your holiday cards, gifts, and tags...
  • No apostrophes are ever needed when making a last name plural.
  • Most family names: simply add an -s. (The Smiths, The Jacksons)

Exceptions:

  • Last names ending in -s: add an -es: (Joneses, Douglases)
  • Last names ending in -x, -z, -ch, -sh: add an -es (Lopezes, Marshes, Fitches)
