Yes, that is perfectly legal. It is better to tell the person that you are making him or her executor for obvious reasons but it is not a requirement and the executor doesn't need to know. However he or she could decline the appointment after your death and then your family of your beneficiaries would have to go to court and get someone else appointed. I hope that helps.
