Not So Special

Just the other day I was thinking that I must be the only person in the world with my name. But I guess I was wrong....looks like I'm one of two?

well, that was fun! i am the only "me"! that is even more fun!

SamErika said...

Right, there's 6 of me, but it tells me that 99.67% of all people with the name Samuel are male. Hmmm....

I checked out my name and Dave's name. 46 of me and 1600 of him. So I decided to look up my maiden name. It "officially" told me that there we NO people is the Us with my maiden last name. Sorry Dad's ENTIRE family, you don't exist.
Go figure!

o.k. i knew there would be a bunch of "me's" but there are 7 people for each of my kid's names.

i thought i was being so original when naming my children!

Shanel, you would be the only you even if there was another someone out there named Shanel...but I'm kind of glad to hear there isn't. :-)

Sam, I agree, that 0.33% is worrying, isn't it?!

Jenny, Usselman is a fine name whether some beta website recognizes it or not. If it makes you feel any better, according to them, Aogu, Koji and Izumi also don't exist!

Cheryl Lynn, I wouldn't totally discount your originality/creativity. Seven other people with the same name out of 300 million is doing pretty well in the "unusual" department, I think.

374,961 Janes. I guess that is what you get when you have a school teacher for a Dad and he was DETERMINED to name his children something that school teachers would be able to pronounce and get it right. Thus we are Jane, Ken and Sam. 113,988 Lucases. Some of our famous relatives are George Lucas, Jerry Lucas, Josh Lucas and Maurice Lucas.

I'm not convinced. 72.97 percent of people with the first name Ollie are female???? I don't think so... I thought my kids names were "one of a kind" but turns out there are 9 other Oliver Cases and 4 other Eli Cases. But my husband... There are 739 John Cases!
