One Last Name Is More Popular Than Any Other In Kalamazoo, Calhoun Counties

Downtown Kalamazoo
TSM: Dana Marshall

I was noodling around through some country records, and I got curious. What is the most popular last name in Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties? SPOILER ALERT: It’s not “Wojadubakowski”

According to Forebears.io, the top five for Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties is the same, but the order is different.

Envelope, please. The most popular last name in both Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties for 2014 is: Smith. There are far and away more Smiths than any other name. Everybody knows a Smith. I know two. One male, one female, one black, one white.

The rest of the top 5 in Kalamazoo is:

1 Smith 2,509
2 Johnson 1,784
3 Miller 1,266
4 Brown 1,242
5 Williams 1,121

The Top 5 for Calhoun Country:

2 Miller 921
3 Johnson 880

And the Wojadubakowskis need to get to begatting.
