14 people have my first name and married name combo but only 1 person (me) has my first name and maiden name combo.

It confirms my reason for not changing my name back to my maiden name after the divorce so many years ago. You have to intentionally try really hard to misspell my married name. That's a blessing after all the misspellings and name calling I endured while a kid with my maiden name.

First
2,331,017

Last
463,459

Combined
3,543

Which is why I sign my writing with all three names. It doesn't make my name unique, but it doesw narrow it down some.

@CalamityJane,
Naw, there are more Gomez's than that in the Albuquerque phone book. One family lives a couple of doors down the street. Nice folks. But lots and lots of them. (Not in my neighbors's family but in general).

My uncle, however, is a William Smith. How many of HIM do you think there are? Smile

@Foxfyre,
Foxfyre, even for an identity thief, a William Smith would not be considered.
Your uncle must get a lot of this: "Hi, I am William Smith!"
"Yeah, right, and I am John Doe!"

One with my name used to be in the Army. For years we got Army mail addressed to LM at our address, but I have never been in the Army. We returned mail and returned mail and returned mail to the post office clearly labeled 'wrong address' but within a few days or weeks here would come more Army mail addressed to LM.

One day we finally got her offical discharge and were relieved that finally. . . .

Then we started getting her all her retirement and benefits information.

When we finally moved off the mountain into town, it stopped. I wonder if the folks that bought our house up there are still getting her mail?

t's not based on real people data, but an statistical exercise with not enough filters.
According to it, 15 people in the US have my first and last name. There are certainly more, because both names are Hispanic. The number multiplies tremendously if I put "John" as first name. This would be true only if the distribution of first and last names was unimodal: both being like Gauss bells.
Not true in a multicultural country.
What name do you think is more common in the US, Maria Rodriguez or Mary Rodriguez? According to the program, Mary Rodriguez is almost 4 times more common. I don't believe it.

@margo,
Hmm, I didn't check addresses if they gave that. I'm betting the three people with my name are all me, with different first name spellings or addresses.

No, they didn't give that, which makes sense.
