Can You Guess the Most Common Last Names in Washington State?
Yes, you guessed it, Smith is No. 1 (as it is for nearly the entire country), but can you guess No. 2 and No. 3?
In Washington State No. 2 is Johnson and No. 3 is Anderson. Same for Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah and South Dakota. But every other state has a slight difference. For example, in Minnesota Johnson is first and NELSON is third! Williams and Miller make the top 3 in most states east of the Mississippi.
In the Southwest, Hispanic names crack the top 3 and dominate it in California and New Mexico!
Hawaii is Lee, Wong and Kim in that order.
California is Garcia Hernandez and Lopez.
Sullivan (Irish) cracks the top 3 in Massachusetts.
