Most Common Names In The 1990 Census

 

The Census Bureau ranked names from the 1990 Census, and we have arranged them in alphabetical order for easy reference. This also makes it easier to compare similar names and see how they rank.

The Census Bureau has a complete page on the limitations and methodology used to compile the frequently occurring names list. The names were based on a sample of 6,290,251 census records.

Just a note, for the female names, the top 20% contains 27 or 28 names. The bottom 20% contains about 3,464 names.
For the surnames, the top 20% contains about 115 names, the bottom 20% contains about 64,000 names.
Since the names were taken from a sample, as you move further down the rank the total percentage may not be totally accurate. Also the difference in the actual number of people with a name at the bottom of the list may not vary much, even though the ranking is very different.
