USA Presidents names

We do not attempt to collect any serious data about presidents here, and we certainly do not pretend that we have. Web sites like Miller Cener at University of Virginia have done great job at that anyway.
Our purpose here is to see how well our Presidents' last names faired in the modern United States. Follow the link corresponding to each President's name to see the statistics. The main thing seen from the list below is the fact that the latest President, Obama, is not really in the list, i.e. in the year 2000 there were less than 100 Obamas living in the United States. Just in case, according to Wikipedia, Obama is an African (Luo) surname. The origin of the name is based on the Luo verb that means 'to be bent' or 'to be twisted. ' It is not an uncommon Luo surname. The name comes from Swahili and refers to members of the Luo tribe who converted to Islam.
