Most Common Last Names in Rice County

Have you ever wondered just how common your last name is? And where it ranks nationally? Check out how Rice County compares to the rest of the nation and just how common your last name is!

The website forebears.io has calculated the most common last names in counties all across the country. When I began comparing the list of the most common last names in Rice County, I suspected that there would be several “local” names that might not be in the top list of last names nationwide, but I was somewhat surprised at how many names in the top on the U.S. list were not present in Rice County’s list.

Names that are in the top 50 most common names within the U.S. that were not on the Rice County list include Davis, Garcia, Jackson, Rodriguez, Martinez, Harris, Lewis, Lopez, Robinson, Allen, Hall, Gonzalez, King, Wright, Adams, Scott, Hill, Baker, Perez, Campbell, Roberts, Mitchell, Carter, Sanchez, Phillips, Evans, Turner, Parker and Collins. This doesn’t mean that we don’t have residents of the county bearing that last name, it just means that it’s not within the most common last names.

Here in Rice County, our top 50 most common last names were: (If you see a number more than once, it means those names tied for that spot)
