HOW DID WE NOT KNOW THIS???
Barbie is an icon. Like many icons, Barbie's last name isn't vital to her brand. In fact, we bet you've never considered the fact that Barbie even has a last name.
Well, for National Siblings day, Mattel revealed what the iconic doll's surname is and it's actually....normal AF.
Super casual reveal.
Barbie Roberts has been around since 1959 and, according to her Wikipedia page, is a Wisconsin native born to George and Margaret Roberts.
Can you believe?
Don't feel bad if you didn't realise that Barbie was a mid- Westerner with a family name, lots of other people were just as shocked.

100% fully thought Barbie's last name was Mattel......now I am shocked and shook to find out it is Roberts.
Please answer this question......where are parents in the Roberts family and why are they not in the picture.

Barbara Millicent Roberts — get with it people!— Lillee Jean (@RealLilleeJean) April 11, 2018
Barbie isn't the only one with a little known surname. Her longtime boyfriend Ken is actually named Ken Carson and now it feels like we never really knew our dolls growing up.
We're not calling her Barbie anymore. It's Barbie Millicent Roberts. Say it with your chest, guys.
