The Most Popular Last Name in Every Country in the World, and What They Mean
If everyone in America named Smith formed their own state, it would be the 35th most populous state in America. Let that sink in.
And while our country and a number of other English-speaking nations have an abundance of Smiths, every country in the world has its own ubiquitous name, where it seems like you’re never in a class, workplace, or on any list without 10 other people having the same name. To find that name in every country in the world, NetCredit took a look at data from Ancestry.com and Oxford reference, and found not only the most popular surname in each nation but also what they all mean.
