    Mine wouldn't work because my surname's double-barrelled.
    I took the hyphen out and it told me there weren't enough people.

    Mine's double barrelled too and I think we're the only family with it in the world. Which is quite cool I suppose. Not very posh though.

    No results for mine- it is doubled barrelled & unique. By using just my mother's surname I got no results either as there are fewer than 100 people with it. My father's name shows as:

    What exactly does 'high status' mean? Last time I checked I was descended from ship cooks. I have 2 surnames because of my parents wanting me to have both of theirs...
    For one I got 41% people with a more rural name, and 3% of people with a more high-status name.
    For my other one, I got 93% of people with a more rural name, and 14% of poeple with a more high-status name.
