Name Finder

Here's an interesting website - you plug in a last name and it shows the countries where that last name is most prevalent.

http://www.publicprofiler.org/worldnames/Default.aspx

You can drill down into each country - for instance, drilling down into Texas shows that Harris County (where Houston is) has the highest concentration of Clayworth's in the state.



I'm not sure where the information is gathered from -- perhaps Census Bureau records, but it's interesting.

New Zealand is the country with the highest frequecy of Clayworth's.

When I ruled the world

I must admit that I don't keep up with the latest in music these days, but even these double-nickel ears can still respond to talent, particularly Coldplay's catchy, intriguing and smart song, Viva la Vida.
