Have your say

Have you ever wondered how popular your surname is?

Well, now you can find out thanks to an ingenious - and oddly addictive - website.

Just click here and enter your surname into the search engine and it will show a heat map of the UK showing the hotspots for people who share your moniker.

Then try your friends, relatives and anyone else you can think of!

And there’s more. In another feature, you can put in you and your partner’s name in and it takes a guess at where you’re likely to have met.
