Genealogy (Love of the Hunt)

Question?  If people were often named after what they did for a living, why isn't the name farmer the most common name.   Why black, brown instead of yellow and orange?
Answer..Yes farmers were the most common occupation so common that they had to distinguish  another way.   Slaves usually took the name of their masters.   Farmers would take the most common American names such as smith, brown,  Jones.   Immigrants took the name of their homeland like Glasgow.   cg
