That one had me confused.
In my mind I was putting together a Who's On First type routine:
That's my last name.
What's your last name?
No, not What, Lastname...
...and so on in that vein...
Also reminded me of a joke: Some years ago, while Ellis Island was still in use, a Chinese immigrant with a noticeable accent had the name John Wellington, and was often asked how he wound up with that name.
He said, "I entered the country through Ellis Island, and I was in line behind a distinguished white-haired gentleman from Scotland named John Wellington. When it came my turn, they asked my name. I told them, and my name was recorded as 'John Wellington.'"
When asked what name he had given, he smiled and said, "Sem-t'ing."
