So I got this on my Google reader the other day and found it interesting.  You put in your last name and it tells you how popular it is around the world.

Oh...just as a note, my name was changed when the great grandparents came over on the boat!  Not sure -why- they chose the name, but they were German.

depending on when they came over. In the 30's and 40's many german immigrants and families with strong german last names changed their names in America so that they did not get a lot of the looks...this is the time when tehy started calling Sourkraut Freedom Cabbage and the like to get it un-germanized...

/end history lesson hehe

It couldn't match my maiden name, which is still my legal name, because, like all Greek names, it has different masculine and feminine forms. The masculine goes:
