When she was born, Estella's last name would have been Magwitch, as she was the daughter of Abel Magwitch. She was adopted by Miss Havisham, however, and never told the truth as to her parents' identities, and so never knew her real last name. Later she married Bentley Drummle, so her last name after that was Drummle.
