Robinson Surname Popularity

Robinson is #20 in ranking in the United States according to 2000 Federal census. There are 579,471 listed Robinsons. This is a 0.233 % frequency.

On the other hand, Smith is #1 with a 2,501.922 rank. Our grandfather was Abiathar Smith Robinson. Aren't we lucky? It's good he has such a distinctive first name. Also, he was born in 1839 in Vermont, so that's different, too.

At the time, the United States was so new that people weren't sure if they were in New York or Vermont since part of New York was used to create Vermont. Some were downright angry about the loss, too.

In England Robinson is #12 in popularity while Smith is also #1 there, too.
