Genetic Genealogy | Test 3 Top Relative Surnames

I was recently looking back over my personal 23andMe genetic genealogy results (Test 3) and discovered an interesting feature: Top Relative Surnames. The Top Relative Surnames feature shows how popular the surnames in my relative finder matches. Currently, my relative finder section is showing the results for 988 participants.

My top five surnames are Pragle, Gawton, Andriessen, Walker, and Garner. The count column shows how many times the name is shown in the profiles of my matches, while the enrichment columns shows how common a surname is in my entire relative finder matches.

I'm interest to see how often this changes as more people are tested and added to the database.
