    There is a chance Stephanies last name is.....

    I think it is known that Stephanie's uncle is the mayor. The first show says that when the mayor says his niece is coming. Now an 'uncle' is either the brother of Stephanie's mother, or the brother of Stephanies father. I don't think any show says which one it is.
    If the mayor is the brother of Stephanies father..then Stephanies last name is MEANSWELL!
    The mayor is Milford Meanswell.

    I am confused. To my mind Mayor is her mother's brother.

    Why do you think the mayor is her mothers brother and not Stephanies father?

    In our country the parents can choose what lastname the child gets, from the father or the mother. The chance that the child has the father's lastname will be 50%. So it depends where Stephanies parents are from.

    C: Here's a good one, and I don't know if you're going to know the answer to this one, but is Mayor Milford Meanswell Stephanie's uncle on her mother's side or her father's side?

    D: I really don't think there's an official answer to that question, and if there is, I've never seen it; nobody's ever told me. I really don't think that anyone really thought that far. I did, because when you start to play a character you create a little backstory for yourself, and I'm not going to share that backstory with you, but, as far as I'm concerned, he is on her mother's side.

    C: Why won't you share the backstory?

    D: Because it's my backstory, and that's that.

    C: Alright.

    I don't know... The 'z' never really did it for me. It makes it look German, and it reminds me of the British plane Spitfire at the same time (which is contradictory because Britain literally used this plane to fight the Germans..)

    Arrgh, it's always making my head itch.

    Another factor is that a Danish "band" recently came out named Spitzenklasse. Their music is... Well, it's horrendous to be totally honest. Their number one hit is called Punani, and if you happen to be old enough to know what this means, you can kinda guess what vibe this duo is trying to bring. So yeah, I'd rather not think about Spitz or Splitz or anything of that matter when watching LazyTown.

    I guess "Splitz" just looks cooler than "Splits"...like internetz, gamerz, hackerz, autotunez etc...and Stephanie is a very cool person...isn't she?...I'm sorry that german-looking words makes you feel uncomfortable...how do you feel when you eat Schnitzel? ...da ist was faul im Staate Dänemark! ...and you didn't have the ballz to post the video so I'll do it for you ...NSFW (I had to look up "punani" btw)

    Haha, yeah way to take the quote out of context Buzz..
    Maybe you didn't catch it when I told you I was actually driving a German car, and used to own a VW. You guys really make the best cars, sausages, and dictatorial leaders of the world. You gotta get some credit for that!
    Also, I live on freaking Lolland bro! We are practically neighbors!

    In the plays, wasn't everyone's last name indicative of their personality? I may have misremembered Ziggy's last name as being Sweets or Candy.

    Yep. Solla Stirša. Solla the Stiff. Her first name was also originally going to be Stiffany, in the show; Stiffany Splitz, now cut down to just Stephanie. The legend still lives on in Dancing Duel.

    Good, glad my memory isn't failing!

    Didn't Chloe's shoes have curly laces in an episode? not to turn this into the similarities thread, but that's another legend living on.

    Not only in the play, actually in almost the entirety of Iceland. It was very common for an Icelandic to have his surname named after his occupation. I'm really shit at giving examples (because my Icelandic is almost non-existent), but I can help you break it down a bit.

    Break it down now! ♫

    Glanni Glępur, a guy that you are obviously very familiar with, is a perfect example. Glępur means crime in Icelandic, meaning that Glanni Glępur would be translated to Glanni Crime.
    However, these names are not to be confused with actual surnames, like we have them now a days. No, they were in fact used as "titles" back then!
    So while the literal translation would be Glanni Crime, the correct way of interpreting this would be Glanni the Criminal.

    Another character that Stefan displays in the play is Rikki Riki. Riki (or actually Rķki) means rich, and Rikki is of course his name. Put them together and you get... Rikki the Rich (One).

    So as you see, surnames back then meant a whole lot other than who your parents might be. I believe many people still, knowing or unknowingly, bear with this former way of doing things. For example, guess where Tom Baker originally got his surname from. Really is staggering, right?

    Stephanie's fanon surname has been Meanswell since at least 2008 or 2009 IIRC. That's what a friend of mine always called her.

    The fact that her last name is Meanswell would make perfect since. Course it would be nice if we got to see her Parents at least once

    Re: There is a chance Stephanies last name is.....

    I get what you're saying, but it just doesn't make sense. I'd suggest watching the first episode and focusing on the metatextual jazz rather than the paint by numbers narrative.

    Stephanie is new in town. She arrives to meet her uncle, and he's a dimmunitive, creepy puppet man. Them not sharing a last name is implicit given her distance traveled and their dissimilarity.

    Also, it makes no sense for a writer to exclude her surname but focus on her uncle's, if indeed the share a name. Why exclude her's?

    It's not unlike the exclusion of a surname during Malcom in the Middle. That fictional universe isn't bereft of surnames, they just play cute when it comes time to address the main characters' name. Fairly Odd Parent did something similar. Now in both cases these were really apparent gags, while here it's more...comedic world building. This gag, and their relationship, helps to ease the actor/puppet divide, especially for kids.

    The name 'Splitz' might not have appeared in the show, but in the absence of contradictory and more updated info, that's it.

    This website refers to Stephanie as "Stephanie Sparkles".

    That is neat. Out of everything in that article it'd be odd for them to just make up a last name. Perhaps Sparkles replaced Splitz as the surname at some point in preproduction, either way they likely got that from some official source given how consistent it is.

    It is odd, no doubt. I contacted the site for a source for that, but there's about a 0.2% chance that I'll get one. I'm dubious though.
