I didn't catch on at first that the length of the underline varied by the length of the prefix. Helpful.

So you're telling me that Flenderson isn't a common last name??? This would make Michael Scott's day.

Good idea, but it needs WAY WAY more time. Like double.

As someone else says, the answers are obvious, when you see (most of) them, but judging by the average score, people aren’t instantly able to rhyme off all the names that end “son” as soon as they see each letter.

As a native of North Dakota, I expectedly did well with the Scandinavian ones, not so well with the English ones.

As a native of Sweden, my peformance was poor. Many are english names. And many of the Scadinavian ones are very rare in scandinavia. And also the spelling is different.

As a teacher who can still name many students from years ago, I always perform remarkably poorly at first or last name quizzes.

I always do really bad on those name quizzes. For some reason, I can never remember a name. It's my Alexander's heel.

It’s kind of weird to know that “Person” is apparently more common in the US than “Jefferson”
