it's not even among the top 55,000 in the country. I know no people outside my family with it spelled like I have it.

now... my mom's dad's is 765
my mom's mom is 2400
my dad's mom is also not in the top 55,000

this all makes perfect sense too... my dad's side is russian as he is only 2nd generation american and my moms is a scots-irish family and she is a 3rd generation american

I think there are about 200-300 people with my last name in the United States, about half of them are in my family. A cheezy rock musician and a guy that ran for congress from California and lost are amongst the "famous" ones. And a few professors. Must be the last name of college profs.

It's much more popular in Bavaria though.

There are 332 people with my last name making it 75,677th most popular.

* There are 2,576,779 people in the U.S. with the first name Richard.
* Statistically the 8th most popular first name.
* 99.77 percent of people with the first name Richard are male.

* There are 18,114 people in the U.S. with the last name Nunn.
* Statistically the 1943rd most popular last name.

I feel for that poor girl called Richard out there. Could have been worse, my mum's name is Johnson. Can you imagine, Dick Johnson.

In Great Britain : 9 365 people share the surname Nunn according to our estimation
The surname Nunn is the 1,095th most common name in Great Britain.

According to the map all in the south as well, a lot out in farm country. Good chance of inbreeding it seems, although it would explain a few things...

I wonder which way the 3 *** lord's bat?
