Hi all!

I'm the child of a sun elf and a moon elf is either a sun elf or a moon elf, which surname do they use? The surname of the parent whose sub race they were born with?

As I recall, it's the surname of the parent whose subrace they share. Though I'm not recalling any by name, I know there were examples of this in the novel Evermeet, and I believe the Evermeet sourcebook also had some in it.

Varies, depending on what's "official". Some noble houses had elves of different subraces under the name.
Just from the "Noble Families of Cormanthyr": most are mainly one subrace, but many have "notable" elves of another listed, with the clan name.
Audark - Green, but Clan Archmage Unae Audark (moon); Durothil - Gold, but Clan Elder Uschymna Durothil (moon); Goadulphyn - Gold, but Clan Heir Thallan Goadulphyn (half-elf); Hawksong - Moon, but Clan Heir Otaerhyn Hawksong (green) and Arms-Captain Otaehryn Hawksong (green); Moonglamaer - Green, but Clan Archmage Raibyr Moonglamaer (moon); Starym - Moon/Gold.
