New York, a giant melting pot of numerous ethnicities. This is clearly evident in the list of the top 25 last names. Check it out.

Now, for me, I am Italian. I have some German and Irish roots in my family as well, but my last name is very Italian. With that said, mine did not make the top 25. I have the kind of last name where I get, "hey, are you related to..", No, I am not, that is the other family.

If you have a bit more common of a last name, maybe you made the list. Here it is.

  1. Smith
  2. Brown
  3. Williams
  4. Johnson
  5. Miller
