How common is your full name?

I picked this up from Punk Walrus, a fellow Arsian and a damn good writer to boot.

The question is: how common is your name in the United States? The site uses information from the 1990 Census (the 2000 Census didn’t contain name information), and has some self-professed accuracy concerns. Still, it’s fun to see how common your first and last name (as a pair) are.

As of 1999, exactly zero people had the same name as me!

How many have your name?

    There are 7 of me. There was one in Albuquerque when I was in Santa Fe – I knew this because the Walgreens (same computer system) kept merging us into one person even though we had different birthdays and social security numbers.

  2. Bond says:

    There is 1 person in the U.S.

    “Yeah, it’s me sucka!”

    How do I know if the 4 persons found are not me (or my clones)?

  4. Bond says:

    I wondered the same thing.

  5. I would hope the census wouldn’t have clones of the same person.

    Speaking of clones I have discovered I’m a freakin Cylon:

    There are 514 people in the U.S. with my name.
