and here I thought I was so Unique...


HowManyOfMe.com
LogoThere are
41
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

what's with that? 40 other people with the SAME name... I mean, yeah - so I'm closely related to one whose name is spelled differently (she's not part of the 40) and yeah, I used to work with one of the others (she got my paycheck once by mistake... THAT was a fiasco)... but really - maybe my Mom and Dad should have named me Natalie after all (can you imagine that?)
Update: ugh - still 39 Natalie ______s... not much better, I'll stick with T__!

Hey T I think 41 isn't too bad. I thought there would be a lot more. Well, when I typed in my name there was all of the big number 1. I didn't expect that.

ok T after putting in all my kids names they all came up with just 1 as well except for harrison and he had 4. Chris was in the 200 range. Guess I picked some unique names.

T said...

ooh, hadn't checked the kids:
Here's the breakdown T Jr. has 16, W has 2 (and oddly enough, we were in the same ward as the other some years back), P has 2 and each of the girls are completely unique!
Q - there are 2, and he lives in the same town now... we get phone calls for him all the time!

I had 6 on my name, but thousands using my maiden name!! This reminds me of using my middle initial on important documents and credit stuff. It makes me wonder who those other 6 people are and whether they are running around being jerks using my name...

T said...

6 Fireflies? but none as yoga-tastic as you I'm sure :)

I'd forgotten that's why I learned to sign with my middle initial :)

I did some more checking - Only 13 of the 41 are on facebook...

Becky said...

Hey, that's fun!

There are ten of me running around if I used Becky, but 66 if I use Rebecca.

I've never met myself before, though. :)

Malinda said...

There are 2 people with my name. I am impressed.

Ronnica said...

As unique as "Ronnica" is, my last name is just as unique. There are supposedly 1500 Ronnicas and about 2500 people with my last name...none that have both, besides me.

Megz said...

Considering the name I married into it wasn't too shocking that there are '1 or fewer' of me.

LC said...

203 of me! I actually thought there would be more!

T said...

Meg - that's just not possible... there's another one living in Provo (at least according to facebook) - maybe my complete faith in the accuracy of everything on the internet is being challenged here...

Chelsi said...

It told me there were one or fewer people with my name. I'm pretty sure I count, so I guess that's leaves just me! I am as weird...um, unique... as I thought!

cold cocoa said...

One or fewer of me, too, which makes me almost sad. When I google myself I know there is another EK out there who is getting in headlines a lot more than this one.

I just stumbled upon your site- but had to stop and say HI.
