This is a really cool site that allows you to enter your last name and identify where in the world that name is most frequently located. McCain? Mostly in the USA, but …. in Ireland? Yup, Northern Ireland. I should have guessed.

And my mother's name? Geipel? [She is first generation American, me? Second, on my mom's side.] Yup…LutherLand, most commonly found in Saxony, Saxon-Anhalt and Thuringia. Figures. A combination of Northern Irishman and a Saxon German. Quite a combination, don't you think?

    Heh. My spelling of my last name is American. But if I switch the last two letters, I get a swath from Brandenburg to Alsace.
