  offramp: Many surnames derive from a familiy’s place of origin.

There are some oddities. The surnames North, East and West are common, but not the surname South.

Surnames based on a town of origin are also common, except for the surname London. In fact there have only ever been two Londons: Jack and Julie.

Why is that? Because people always went TO the south and TO London. There was no one leaving those places that befitted them being given nickname status.

It is the same with Paris. A rare surname.
