Just a quick question, will a letter of rec written by someone with the same last name as me but not related to me be looked down upon? How do I specify that we are not related?

I don't think there's nothing to worry about if you truly aren't related. If you are worried about it, have the person writing the LOR somehow include that you guys aren't related. One sentence should suffice. However, I don't think it would be necessary.
