There are apparently over 1300 people who share my name

Apprently I have a "strangely common yet weirdly uncommon name"

Are you one of a kind?

"There are probably more people killed in yoghurt, cream, marshmallow and fluffy thing accidents each year then there are of you."

Hmmm.... Didn't think my name was that rare...... Kinda cool I guess!

Edit- My stage name got "You are as rare as a wombats wingnut" Ha ha

Absolutely zero!

I have a double barrelled first name, and surname. Although, 93 people have the same first name as me.

Entirely deliberate. We created the double-barrelled surname when we got married in December. I didn't want to have the same name as his Mother

122 - I thought it would be many more than that.

I do happen to know that one of them also shares my date of birth, because I was questioned about my address once when applying for a bank account. Turns out they had someone the same name, same DOB allready with an account.

I also happened to end up chatting to a guy with the same name in Ireland after a mixup with email.

142 people share the same name as me.

It also says

Your name is common enough to ensure free hire of the social club hall at your reunion party. Mmmmm Cocktails Sausages for all.

Depends on whether I abbreviate my forename or not.

Abreviated it is just 65

In full it is 1170

Think I'll stick with the abreviated form

None apparently!

I know for sure there are at least 14 with my surname - but that's my family! It isn't a common name.

672451 Michaels though.

None according to that! That's surprising as I wouldn't have thought that my name was that rare

I'm impressed, I shall now go and steal their identities and take over their lives.

2886.

I thought there would be more than that.

I actually know two people in town with the same name as mine.

One of them is a mate, we even look similar and are in the same trade.
I once got a phone call from someone who wanted a lot of work done and it was only half way through that the client realised that I was not the person (my mate) who had been recommended to them.

It was my lack of a Scottish accent that gave it away.

I am the only one in the country with my name, according to this. I already knew my name was very unusual.

None, which is strange as I'm sure a few years ago there was someone else... perhaps they moved or died.

what about with your surname?

I wonder if anyone has become "commoner" once they have married and taken their partner's name..

26 people with the same full name as me, (well first and surname), I thought that there would be slightly more, but hey I am not going to complain, now to track them down, and ask them why have they got the same name as me!

There are apparently 11025 other people with the same surname as well!

79,847 people with the same first name!

"I like this number. It's somewhere between here and over there. I wish I was there rather than here. Any Invites?. Well done keep it up. P.S. Watch out for the robots."
