Give me back my name

The highest density of Byrnes can be found in Ireland.
Weymouths live in Australia, Frantz is typically American.
And the Harrisons live in England.

...and after checking that, and your own name, and discovering that the Angels live in Spain, your curiosity takes over and you find out that Shit is a common family name in India, the Bummers live in Austria and Obama could be the president of Japan.

Any other 'interesting' finds?

Harrison! Head 4 England,Laddie! You'll just be letting the side down should you not :respect:

Presumeably, with the ever-increasing population and reluctance to engage contraception, that is the origin of the phrase "Shit happens!"

p.s. can't do link in Her Maj's H'Office,maybe later

p.p.s. You wouldn't want the Double-Barrell: Obama-Bummer...that would be a Double Barrell Bummer ;)

Only now exploring this section, stumbling upon this thread and the link. Mr. DRC, I asked if you knew of any concentrated areas with Chandlers in the U.K.... the following page pinpoints the south... ... ry_code=GB

... my own genealogical research, while inconclusive, points toward Canterbury... some 350 years ago.

Related, only last month I managed to trace a secondary branch of my maternal line to Dingwall, Scotland, 1648 (on my 2008 U.K. tour we visited Loch Ness, some 20 miles south of Dingwall, likely making me the first of this bloodline to return to the motherland since 1760 when they sailed west to America)...

Always take care, Chandler
