    Supposed to find the hot spots for your surname. Hottest spot for mine is Aussie land. So maybe that explains why I've always wanted to live there. Shrimp on the barbie! :tailgate:

    For my mom's surname, it's actually right here in TN. Us rednecks stick to ourselves lol.

    Surname is actually your last name, your family name.

    Wow, my last name is most common in New Zealand and Australia. It's a Scottish name so silly me, I thought it'd be found with the most frequency in... Scotland. :clown:
