Websites - Worldnames

I've just found this website World Names Profiler and it's quite interesting.

It shows how surnames are distributed across the world.

Don't know how accurate it is but it does make for interesting reading.

I've checked out TILLIN and HICKINSON and they seem to match up with what I already know.

Thanks to Facebook® Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers for highlighting this website


  1. Hi, Jo! Welcome to the geneablogging world! It's refreshing to see something other than U.S. based research. By the way, I awarded you the Kreativ Blogger award at These awards are a way for us to advertise each other's blogs on our own blogs in hopes of gaining more followers for everyone and to recognize blogs that we think are helpful and informative.

  2. Hi, nice post. I have been wondering about this topic,so thanks for sharing. I will certainly be subscribing to your blog.
