Most Common Last Names

So, I’m lazy.  This may not be insanely accurate, but its prolly close.  I’m only doing real names in this case because fake names would get stupid.


  1. Lots of spelling variations.  Either via accent marks, s instead of z, or “somebody”sson spelled slightly different.
  2. I’ve combined names that just have an accent mark difference.  I am assuming these are essentially identical.
  3. Names with a /M indicate that is the total over multiple spellings

Here are the top 20 most common last names.
