    Talking 121-last but not least

    Hello all

    What does (last but not least) mean, and where can I use it?
    Doesn't reduce the value of the guy we use this expression for him?

    On the contrary, it enhances the value of the last person. It means 'last to be mentioned but by no means least in importance'.

    I would like you to meet my brother Jim, my sister Jill, and last but not least, my cousin Billy.
