Subject: "SURNAMES" - When did this practice start????

Can anyone tell me when did the practice of using a "surname" became legal.
This would clear up some issues for me. And if known, what country started it
initially. From some very "iffy" research it looks like it started in the late
1600s.

Thanks
Ronnie
