Got an email reference question that I thought might be of interest... "I've been trying to determine the most common name in the
US. Not the most common first name, not the most common last name - of
which there are many resources, ranking them by birth year (census),
and overall. But of the *full name*.
Just because there's a lot of people named James, doesn't mean
that there aren't more Johns with the last name Johnson.
I did try a couple of library answering services, but they
drew blanks as well, giving it their best guesses."
