Historically, most tombs known to have grave goods in them were robbed soon after the dead person was laid to rest. So why has the tomb that your group of adventurers broken into not already suffered this fate?
Surnames: Most surnames fall into one of four categories. Patronymic surnames such as Johnson pass from father to son (literally, 'Son of John'). Occupational surnames such as Cook or Miller stem from an individual's livelihood. Topographic names such as Forest or Ford identify habitation. There are also a few surnames that derive from individual characteristics or nicknames...Small and Stern for example.
