    In order: United States (most predominantly Pennsylvania), Canada (most predominantly in Manitoba), the UK, and Germany.

    It has Japan in gray, but I think that's probably because I live here, since I'm 99% sure I'm the only person in Japan with my last name, which isn't a very common one.

    my top 3 were canada, the US and the UK.

    which is wierd, because it's my dad's last name and his whole family is Guyanese - and that area (part of south america) is grey.

    No matches. There are around 14 people with my surname in the world, and they're all related to me, and Finland doesn't show up on the search.

    Hmm, my last name was actually a misspelling from when my father emigrated to the US in 1978. My original last name was Homapour, which is of Iranian origin. I tried Homapoor and got no results so I tried Homapour, and of all places, that name showed up in Norway. That's the most metal fucking thing I've ever seen. :metal:

    My top 3 was Sweden, Norway and Canada. Sweden and Norway are pretty obvious, but I didn't expect Canada to be so high on the list. Of course, Finland didn't show up, but I think it would've had the second most people with my name.

    Canada, Australia and New Zealand for me. Guess they didn't count China as it was completely white haha. Top cities had San-Fran (figures), Brooklyn and Madrid (weird). Cool shit. @_@
