Does anyone know of any good websites to find Central or West African surnames?

Surnames vary by country/ethnic group what are you looking for exactly? I can rattle off a few Ghanaian surnames if that helps.

Logic would demand that I'm of Central or West African descent. In Asia there are certain surnames that transcend countries, Lee for example. Does Africa have any surnames that are commonly used throughout various Western and/or Central African countries in the same fashion as Asia's use of the surname Lee?

African Embassy? Wouldn't I need to specify a country?
