Conditions for the grouping are named having like:

 SELECT COUNT(*) AS `Rows`, `Ssurname` FROM `member` GROUP BY `Ssurname` HAVING COUNT(*) > 2

You must write

SELECT COUNT(*) AS `Rows`, `Ssurname` FROM `member` GROUP BY `Ssurname`
HAVING COUNT(*) > 2
ORDER BY `Rows` Desc

WHERE can be used only for individual rows
For filtering on aggregates, use HAVING
