Well, don't forget, that mozilla firefox was a long time also called 
firebird. If you add "sql" to all that searches, look at the result now 
(FWIW) ;-)

mysql sql: 8,490,000
oracle sql: 8,330,000
firebird sql: 365,000
postgresql sql: 2.740,000
db2 sql: 2,000,000
interbase sql: 397,000

Firebird is now way behind.
