my last name is the same as a popular beverage, so it's very rare I get called something other than some variation of it. Even when people call me by my first name they always include my last name after it

Hey Snyde, is that YOU? I call you by your first name! Remember when Marisol didn't know who I was talking about?

Yeah, kinda the same thing here. It sorta bugs me, but there are two other people I work with, both are my boss, that have the same first name as me, and we all get called by our last names.

Others get called by their last name, others don't.

I'm the third...so everyone called me by my spanish name growing up, which is hard to pronounce and spell, so I usually go by my last name.

That way introductions don't take an hour.

Actually, the line in the song is "properties" of love!
