Joneses break world record in Wales
Last Updated: Friday, November 3, 2006 | 11:42 PM ET

Keeping up with the Joneses acquired a whole new meaning on Friday night. It now means trying to break the world record for the largest gathering of people with the same last name.

More than 1,220 people whose last name is Jones converged on Cardiff, Wales, to break the record. Jones is said to be the most common surname in Wales, but many came from as far away as Canada, Australia and the United States.

Hotel operators in Cardiff reportedly had to distinguish people by their first names or the province or state they were from.

The event on Friday, held at the Wales Millennium Centre, was simply called "Jones, Jones, Jones."

Singers Grace Jones, Dame Gwyneth Jones and Gwyn Hughes Jones performed for their namesakes.

Welsh singer Tom Jones born Thomas Woodward sent a special message to those who gathered.
