My Name

I thought I had a common name. My first name is definitely a common one, but when combined with my last name, it is a little less common than I thought. This is for the name that I go by these days.
LogoThere are:
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

For my birth name, there are 141 people with the name. For the name I went by before I was married, there are 45 people with the name. I hate being part of a crowd. I am on a mission to find a name that nobody else has. I think I will go by that instead.


My kid's names are original, nobody else in the US has those names, so I'm happy now.

Actually, I am wondering if those numbers aren't just made up on the spot and gullible people like me accept it as fact.

This is cool. There are 5 people in the US with my first and maiden name, and 1,739 with my first name and married surname. Guess that's what happens when you marry a commoner. I can't wait to tell him.
