Mary and James Smith

July 7th, 2008 by Moti Karmona | מוטי קרמונה · No Comments

Census 2000According to the U.S. Census Bureau Y2K statistics (accuse me for being nostalgic but this is as good as it gets until 2010)

* 7 most common Americans surnames are Smith, Johnson, Williams, Brown, Jones, Miller or Davis.

* 4 million surnames  are held by only one person.

* This can be very helpful when you are trying to guess someone name… with ~2,376,206 Smiths, I suggest Mr. Smith.

* This could be problematic when you are looking for Mary or James Smith and all you have is the name…

* Moti Karmona isn’t even there ;-)
