On every city (or county) page in city-data.com there is a list of the 10 most common last names in that city. I need a list like that but for say, the most common 100 names in a city (or really an arbitrary number). It would seem a fully searchable white pages database or US Census database should provide this, and presumably city-data has gotten their data here from somewhere. But I have searched in vain for a searchable db to produce a sorted list like this. Does anyone know where I can find this? Thanks.

Just to answer my own question it seems clear that city-data has gotten their last name data from ObituaryData.com. A one year subscription is $20,900.
