Different spellings are considered different names by the bodies dealing with statistics in the nations of the UK. Clark is the more common spelling in Scotland. Likewise, Thompson is outside the top 100 in Scotland, but Thomson would make a top 10 if a similar quiz was made for Scotland. The no-P spelling is not totally unheard of in England, but is comparatively rare.
