So, Ancestry.com recently released a graphic showing the most popular surnames in each state. The data is according to listings in the white pages, and the names – Smith, Johnson and Williams – are the winners. I already knew my paternal surname would not be on the list, but I was slightly surprised at the top names in my home state of Texas – Garcia, Smith, and Martinez. It’s proof that our country has evolved into a fondue of diversity. Our country is changing. And not everyone is a fan of change. But change can be good.
As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said –
We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
