Joy and Jenny's name...

So I was doing some reading and found out that the DP anime proposed the idea of the names "Joy" and "Jenny" being surnames, and not first names as many of us thought. Now before this I had used the idea of Joy/Jenny as surnames as a means of separating game from story, and reducing the confusion of all of them being named the same. But now it's not headcanon anymore, it's canon.
But when I think about it more, I realize that the idea of Joy/Jenny being last names was so very obvious, and I am embarrassed that it didn't hit me before. What I mean is, they are called "Nurse Joy" and "Officer" Jenny".
Imagine you have a nurse. Let's say her name is...Abigail Baxter. Now, with that in mind, how exactly do you think she would be addressed? Would people call her "Nurse Abigail" or "Nurse Baxter"? More than likely the second, at least by patients at the hospital or superiors. And the same would be true for Jenny. I mean aren't most police officers referred to by their rank and surname? I mean among close friends, it would be the first name, but otherwise...
I feel like an idiot for that not dawning on me before that.
