Umm, you are not being *called* by your surname alone. You are being
*referred to* (in your presence, to be sure) by your surname alone.
I used to refer to you as "ME", but I made the mistake of using
that as the object of some verb, and was widely thought to
have been saying "me" with emphasis. Much confusion.
I suggest you call for help, John Cowan
