@aidan,
Would you be interested in finding the ones with the same last name as you and have a family get together?

@saab,
Since my aunt (maiden name Hinteler) has died, there aren't more than six (sister with maiden name) with my family name in the world.

My combination is unique over all the centuries.

(There's a rather famous Dutch football player, Huntelaar. And there are a couple of 'Huntelaars' in the Netherlands and USA. The name seems to have the same origin as ours - but not related. [In the 17th and 18th century two female Hintelers married Dutch people, but took, of course, their husband's names.])

Our family's name will die - after more than eight centuries - but survive in two street names and the name of one hamlet.

There are 107,902 Olgas in the US.

There are 382 folk with my with my "real" (family) surname, xxxxx, (which means "herring" in Ukrainian). Neutral

There are 1 or fewer Olga xxxxxs in the US.

@Walter Hinteler,
It is wonderful that you can trace your family 800 years back. I find it very interesting to know about the people who lived before us.

Pure luck. The earliest files are kept in the state archive - but there's a "big whole" from 1500 till 1620.

@Miller,
IF? your last name is "MILLER", then 671 has to be wrong. So I thinks your last name is NOT miller.

I was checking further and the census is what gives them this info.

There are fewer than 1,544 with the first name Philis.
There are 3,486 people with the last name *************.
Statistically the 9806th most popular last name.

There are 1 or fewer people named Philis *************. So I MUST be the 1. Cool

thanks for the link

My last name goes back to the 400's AD

I google myself from time to time. There are at least 100 women with my combination of first (common for my generation) and last name (fairly common in the Midwest) who come up. Most are in the medical field.

@plainoldme,
So, there are 1,232,236 women with my first name but only 9,853 with my surname, which is my maiden name. The site says there are only 39 people with the combo but I have found many more on line. There could be duplication because when people move, their names are often listed with strings of addresses.

I got the same thing for both my first name and the combination.

There are fewer than 1,553 people in the U.S. with the first name <my first name>.

@homefellas87,
500,845 have my first name, predominately females (phew) no one has my surname, (probably because it's hyphonated), 113,000 have half of my surname...
