How many people have your same name?

United States
September 6, 2008 11:43am CST
I checked my emails this morning and someone had sent me this link. http://www.howmanyofme.com/ It's really neat. You type in your first and last name and it tells you how many people in the world have your same name. I typed in my full name and it said there were like 1,519 people that have my same name in this world. Then I typed in my son's full name and only 15 people in the world has his name. I thought it was kinda neat. So have a look and see how many people have your same name.

I have checked out that site and was surprised how many people had the same name as me. That was cool to know that I was not the only person in the US with my name. I forgot how many people had my name. It was last month or the month before that someone posted a discussion about this site and I tried it to see.

I just thought it was a neat website that I got in my email today. It's fun to know how many people with your name are around the US.

Only one person in the States besides me has my first and last name so I do not have to worry about getting the wrong email. Mind you there are probably more with the variables, but not how I spell it. However it does not tell how many there are in the whole World and I suspect if that expanded to Europe and Canada there would be more. But there were not many with my name and maiden name when we first came to Canada. And I guess not much has changed.

I'm apparently the only person in the country with my name. I was expecting at least one other person but no, only me. For rankings my first name was like 1,350 something and my last name was like 750 something. there were a lot of people with my first name though

Haha.. My name is really unique! There are 1 or fewer people in the U.S. with my name. I guess the main reason is because I am a Chinese from Singapore. I have a Chinese name. It's logical that a chinese name is uncommon in the U.S.

its funny that whiule i was in my second year in high school i used to have this guy who was in the same class with me and we share the same first name and surnames ,its funny because sometimes i get punished for his acts and it was a tug of war when it comes to marking our scripts the school authority had to separate us into different classes

funny site, but I dont think it can give the absolute statistics for hindu names. I felt so because it gave the same number for few hindu names.

Wow, cool I just checked it out. I just typed there my first name, and it says that there at least 1,525 persons in the U.S that has my first name and 14,030 people that has my last name. I tried first name of my daughter and it says that there are 10,678 has her name too. Very nice. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most common name in the US is John Smith. So, the results, 5,007,892 for the name John and for the last name smith it's 3,069,107. Thanks for sharing! :)

I know that my first name is really ordinary and quite have many people with the same name. But I am still surprised that there are 238,908 people have the same name and it was just in USA only, what more in the whole world. As for my last name, it said that there are fewer 335 people who has the same name and only 1 or few have the same full name. I think it was quite neat and pretty accurate. Thanks for sharing this to us, it was really fun to try this.

When it comes to my married name there is only 1 of me. With my maiden name there are 4 of me. I also checked my husband's as well as both of my kids and their is only 1 of them when it comes to both their first and last names. What I found even more interesting is that there are fewer than 336 people with my married name. When it comes to my maiden name it is statistically the 12283rd most popular last name. Pretty cool.

That's is a really fun site! Of course, I had to go through all my families names. My name is 120 the same, my husbands is 1 or fewer, my son's name is 29 and last but definitely not least my daughters name is 6 names in the U.S are the same. Now I'm off to check some other names. Thanks for the fun and interesting link!
