In fact Simone is NOT a name, it is a first name, or "christian name".
I have never seen it as a family name.
Ex: Simone De Beauvoir (a french 20th century philosopher and feminist writer, close friend of Paul Sartre, Existenlist Philopher and writer); or Simone Signoret, very well known french actress, same period.
