How many different type of fingerprints are there?

According to a 1905 study of 5,000 individuals that was published in Finger Prints, Palms and Soles by Cummins and Midlo, the breakdowns were as follows:
Plain whorls: 20.05%
Lateral Pockets & Twin Loops: 3.13%
Centrel Pockets: 2.11%
Ulnar Loops: 64.02%
Radial Loops: 5.69%
Tented Arches: 0.58%
Other Arches: 4.27%
Of course, a group of 5000 individuals isn't a fair representation of the world's population. And the pattern names from this book have been modified a little over the years.

Loops are approximately 60 to 65 per cent of fingerprint patterns.
Whorls are approximately 30 to 35 per cent
Arches are approximately 5 per cent.
There is some minor percentile variation with ethnic groups.

Which fingerprint pattern is the most common?

Click here to see a picture of the different classification patterns used in the Henry system (the most popular system in English speaking countries).
This is from the Boy Scout Fingerprinting Merit Badge page here.

Where would I be able to find pictures of the different types of fingerprints, I want to be sure I'm classifying them correctly.

Fingerprint patterns appear on the end of each finger of each individual. There are 3 basic pattern types which are the (1) Arch (2) loop and (3) whorl. These 3 pattern types are then sub-divided into a total of 8 types, which are:
1. The plain and tented arch
2. The ulnar and radial loop
3. The plain; the double loop; the central pocket; and the accidential whorl.
These pattern types are used to classify a set of fingerprints that would appear on a fingerprint card when a person is arrested, applies for a job; etc. The fingerprint card is classified in order to place it in a file and retrieve it based on the fingerprints.

How many different types of fingerprints are there? Like the different designs. And what are their names, if they have names.
