I don't know that it's ever given explicitly, but I'm pretty sure his last name is Charles. His and Berenice's uncle is last name of Charles, and that leads us to think that is their family name as well.

You know, I really don't think he has a surname in the way we think of one. I have read the play a long time ago and I recall our professor saying it had something to do with black culture at the time.

The play is a narrative of the Charles family. So I would think it very likely for Charles to be Boy Willie's last name.
