Proper noun[edit]

Smith

  1. An English surname (the most common in Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand).
    • 1852 D. H. Jacques, A Chapter on Names, The Knickerbocker, or, New-York Monthly Magazine, Volume XL, August 1852, page 114:
      John is a most excellent name, and Smith is a surname which is worthy of respect and honor, but wo to the man on whom they are conjoined! For John Smith to aspire to senatorial dignities or to the laurel of a poet is simply ridiculous. Who is John Smith? He is lost in the multitude of John Smiths, and individual fame is impossible.

  3. A ghost town in California
  4. An unincorporated community in Indiana
  5. An unincorporated community in Kentucky
