    How about that #41. Truly I though the name would be a little more common than that.

    Nope, cause there's like thousands and thousands of more.

    For example , of all the names (and that is like about 30) I have found out in my genealogical tree, only Becker (#8) is in the top 100. And there is Seiffert with is an alternative spelling to Seifert (#111). And there is Schultze, which is the rarest alternative spelling to Schulz (#9)

    All the others - not in the list.
