    I love my surname and, in particular, the philanthropy associated with it across the world.

    To answer your question, London.

    None for mine either. There's only three hits for it on facebook too, myself, my brother, and some thieving ******* from Australia.

    Mine's most common in Medway which doesn't surprise me. There are hundreds of Arnolds around here.

    Mine is a bit spread out.
    3 Most popular places are: Luton, Kirkwall and Glasgow - so 1 mostly in england and 2 in Scotland
    Pretty interesting - I've only known of my family(not many of us :P to have my name and it's Irish so wasn't sure if it'd have many results tbh

    The most in EC London (where ironically I'm also living next year :awesome:), second most common in Edinburgh. Not surprising considering my last name's "Imported From Abroad; European; Italian."

    Mostly in Sheffield, Nottingham and Chester.

    My dad is from Scunthorpe, but worked in a steel factory for a long time.

    This has no relevance.

    Southall and Wolverhampton. Seeing as I have no idea where these places are or what kind of people inhabit it, I can't say if that's expected. :\
