Notice: Hi!

I'm doing a research study and I need to tease out which individuals are Asian soley by last name. Is there a comprehensive list out there or a search database? I understand 'Asian' is broad, but I'm okay to search by country or other modifiers. I'm mostly looking for Southeast Asian last names.

On a similar note, the second project is for Somalian last names. Is there such a database also? I know Somali will be more challenging given the array of different last names originating from several European countries.

Thank you so much in advance for your time and expertise.
