  3. The last name could be Blackby. The end-hook of the first "l" is low to the baseline and the "a" follows. Why would he take the end of the second "l" so high just to follow it with a letter that normally starts at the baseline? Plus, there's that extra bit just before the "y." I think the next-to-last letter is a "b."
