My mane is RAJ and it is quite popular here in my part of the world, thanks to some of the bollywood movies which have a character named RAJ. Girls love this name here and the only other name for a guy that is as cool here is Sameer. But still RAJ is the ultimate name to have for anyone in India. What about your name?

Hi my friend, My full first name is Charlotte and I have found only a few women that also have that name. It must not be that popular of a name. Even though it is nine letters, people always called me Charlotte until I met my hubby and he shortened it to Char so I use that a lot now a days. Happy MyLotting! Char

My name is pretty unusual. I only know of one other person with the same name and she spells hers differently. My first name is actually two names, and I don't have a middle name. The first part of the name is the feminin spelling of a male name, and the 2nd part of the name is feminine, so obviously it is not to popular of a name for women.

My name is Susan and it was the most popular name for 1957.There are thousands of susans in the fifty age group.There were four in our class at school and everyone knows a susan ,but they call me Sue.Nobody uses the name these days as most parents have a susan in their family.Your name Raj sounds really nice but it does not have the same effect as mine.People want your name.merry christmas,xx

You have rightly said that your name is very popular. The first person having your name comes to my mind is 'Raj Kapoor' perhaps the best showman of Indian Film industry. There are lots more. According to my knowledge, 'Raj' means king or something related to king. Am i correct? As far as, my name Dilip, is concerned, it is also not much uncommon. In every classes in school, in graduation and post graduation and the places where i now reside or have resided, i got more than one namesake.

I live in the United States and my name is Sharon. I don't think that many people name their children Sharon any more but when I was in school it was very popular. I often had at least one and some two people with my name in a class. I do hear it called out when shopping but it usually turns out to be an older person like myself.
