Well, if you are really serious about this name business, it is much 
deeper than just current frequencies of names. Both the popularity of 
given personal names and their conjunction with family names varies over 
time (see http://www.galbithink.org/names.htm for a good discussion of 
the long term changes in naming fashions in the UK). I'm distantly 
related to a few hundred people in Australia, none of whom share my 
surname as far as I know. Additionally, I am not related to any of the 
people in Australia who do share my surname, again as far as I know.
