Obviously character names are unique per server, but are legacy surnames as well?

Yes, legacy names are unique per server and all your alt toons will have the same legacy name on that server.

If I picked "StackExchange" as a legacy name on one server, no one else can pick that name on that server. But if they moved to another server where it wasn't taken, then it's up for grabs.

Better to identify people's alts with.

Don't believe me? Take a look here and here.

I think the -1 because he means if the legacy names are unique... meaning for example if i take the Stackexchange legacy name, he can't take it because i already have it. –  Lyrion Dec 26 '11 at 14:44
    
I tried to clarify that legacy names are unique PER server (all your alt toons will have the same legacy name on that server). So if I picked "StackExchange" as a legacy name on one server, no one else can pick that name on THAT server. But if they moved to another server where it wasn't taken, then it's up for grabs. –  Krazer Dec 26 '11 at 15:06

No. This restriction was removed during the latest server merges, with Patch 1.3.7. In the first server merge I was required to change my Legacy name due to the constraint, but after the second merge I was able to change it back.
