How Many People Have Your Name?

 
 
Reply Tue 19 Aug, 2008 08:41 am
Someone sent me this link. You type in a name and the site tells you how many people have this name in the U.S., both first, last, and the combination of the two names. Not a terribly deep exercise, but fun nonetheless.

Apparently, 191,141 people have my first name, 39,638 have my last, but only 25 have the combination. There are actually 300 people with the name "John Doe".

What about you?

1,577,896 people in the US have my first name--I believe it was the most popular girls' name when I was born. (That's why I often go by a nickname that has stuck with me--"Buzzy".) 73,178 have my last name and 379 have my first and last name.

For fun I tried it with my maiden name too and only 3537 have my last (maiden) name and only 18 people have my first and last (maiden) name.

@Foxfyre,
The possibility exists that I am only a fraction of a person?

@squinney,
Well if you are only a fraction Squinney, I'm absolutely certain that you're the better half, so no worries. Smile

Sounds like Caribou might not be quite 'all there' either. Smile

But finally I understand those stats when they say that an average household has 2 and 3/4 people. Smile

@Phoenix32890,
I have 634,207 with my first name; 21,344 last name and only 44 for my complete name - good thing I changed when I got married as I significantly higher combo with my maiden name.

One daughter there is only 7 and the other only 12 - I thought both their first names were more popular (probably though more recently).

I checked one friend of mine who is always easy to find on a google search and it said one or fewer with her name.

@Phoenix32890,
164,650 have my last name
179 have my first (a sort of combo name, and they take out the space and a capital)
3 have my full name

I ran into one of those one hundred and seventy nine people once in a line on some sort of visiting day to check out a local college. My name is... "but that's MY name", and we had a nice little conversation. I've seen the first name online a few times and in print once in a while. Some people on a2k know my first name as Jo, but the full thing is longer and reminds me of, say, a nun's reprimand in fourth grade, usually spoken in a warning voice using apostrophes.
