And we think Smith is a common surname.

Apparently in China in 2000, a colossal 92 million people have the surname Wang. Chinese for King. Slightly similar sounding words then.

Imagine trying to find a ancestor in China with that surname and a first name that is the most common Chinese forename. Makes our John Smith's sound easy.
