If you don't have Excel, DataPilot in the free Calc app within OpenOffice might also work. I personally have extremely limited use with Calc and none with DataPilot, so can't say with certainty.

If I wanted to know how to kluge something to achieve this result, I'd post it to the appropriate forum. I have ways to do this, but none of them is a built-in feature.
This was a request -- "Wish List" -- for a built-in report that would return the number of given names per surname just as the surname frequency list does this now.

Search by surname. or search by male or female and surname, or search by given name equals/contains [given name] and surname.
Report will be sorted by surname, given. It includes female spouses maiden names but those can easily be deleted after saving the report to a text file.

I believe that the wording on the forum used to be stated so as to promote others making suggestions that could be used until a particular idea were implemented, if implemented. It's just become part of the board culture.
These suggestions aren't in any way meant to minimize the wish, but to indicate other methods that can be used in the interim if obtaining the information is important.
