Should not be an issue, but you may want to address it in the cover letter to avoid any confusion about you being family etc.

26 US states allow cousins to marry so it should not be a problem..:)

?? Not sure what laws about cousins marrying has to do with the issue of same last names. A more common assumption might be something along the lines of they are already married and therefore don't qualify for the K-1. (Or, if wanting to pursue the line of relatives, could even be brother-sister posing for a sham marriage for immigration purposes). It likely won't be a big problem (unless it's a really unusual name) but it's good fo you both to be prepared to address the issue, since you will likely be asked about it.

I would highly suggest long form birth certificates for both you and your intended at interview.

Btw my husband and I share a birthday. (Different years) so I know how finding something so similar can be interesting.

I doubt you'll have problems because your birth certificates will show different parents.

On another note, a friend recently got married to a man with the same first name. Their mutual first name Dana is unisex. Hilarious.
