    Mods move this if you want.

    With the likely August signing of Neil Barrett, "Barrett" will move into 2nd place with 3 players: Wade, Chad and Neil. But at the moment they have 2.

    The leader is "Gomez" with 4: Fracisco, Chrisitian, Chris and Herculez.

    Others with 2 are: "Brown", "Gonzalez", "John", "Johnson", "Marshall", "Moreno",
    "O'Brien", "Roberts", "Rodriguez", "Torres", "Twellman", "Walker", and "Wilson"

    Does this include Mark Wilson who will be signing with FCD on Aug 15 when the window opens?

    If and when Mark signs with FCD, the "Wilson" surname will move back into a second place tie with the Barretts. The other two Wilsons are John Wilson from DC United and Easton Wilson from the Revs.

    You seem to have completely missed the Ramirezes: Pando, Ramon and Orlando.

    There are also two Thompsons: Abe and Jason.

    Correct. But Pando? Guillermo is listed.

    Anyway, here is the list of players. Sorry for missing a few.

    Sure is. For some reason I've always thought that was the most unique name MLS has ever had (IMO of course). His real name was Vitalis and he played with KC from 96-99.

    Don't you guys have Smith or Jones in the States? Actually that's half serious, once people with anglo-saxon type surnames get in the majority in MLS that could be a good indicator that soccer is becoming more of a mainstream professional sport in your country.
