Are there any websites that show if there are people living in Denmark or Germany who have a particular (an ususual) surname? Ancestry.com does not.

If you just want to see if a name is found in different countries, try a search in the telephone directories that are available online.

Telephone white page listings for Denmark: https://www.numberway.com/dk/
