    As mentioned many times, it's a question if it's Wilkerson or Nolastname.

    Yeah, Wilkerson was shown to be his last name in the Pilot but after that, the creator thought it would be better for his last name and where he lived to be a secret so in the finale they showed francis' name tag as Francis Nolastname.

    I still can't find where it said 'Nolastname' on Francis' name tag. The other sign of the last name is the principal introducing Malcolm on to the stage for his valedictory speech as you probably can see his lips saying 'Nolastname.'

    I don't recall anyone saying the family's last name unless it was deleted or censored out (like the microphone on the finale).

    Yeah. I just saw the Wikipedia article about Malcolm In The Middle and it had a section--There was a section in the article all about the last name(s). I personally think that Malcolm and his family might have two last names (or one real last name,Wilkerson,and the other,Nolastname,just a huge joke amongst the family members,like the brothers,and by that I mean,Malcolm,Reese,Dewey,maybe the baby Jamie,but maybe he doesn't really know,again,Jamie's a maybe,but definitely DEFINITELY Francis,because I mean,he in public,used the last name in a way,and he's the only one who took the family joke and made it public). That's just my prediction,that's all. And,nobody knows what the writers were thinking (well,with the pilot,that's an understatement,but with the finale,it fits well).

    A Sky One (in the UK) advert from about a year ago advertising the Simpsons/Malcolm said something along the lines of "spend your weekend with the Simpsons and the Wilkersons".....
