How many people have your name?

I have been trying to prepare a couple of posts that just won’t ‘take’, and I don’t know why. As a result, I didn’t have a post ready for yesterday, so I am writing a quick one for now. I’m hoping this one works.

I have a fun question for you today …

How common is your name; have you ever wondered?

Have you ever met someone who shares your name, and then you wondered how many other people have it, too? I have often pondered this same thing. Well, now you can find out.  At least, that is, you can find out – through an estimate based on the 2000 census – how many people have your name in the United States. On the website it says the 2010 census is not out yet, although the census is done every ten years. I have not found a site for the same thing in Canada.

Curious? Read on.

Recently, I came across an interesting website where you can type in your name and find out how many people in the United States answer to it, too. Click on How many of me to go to the website where I learned there are 103 people in the US with my name. There are other fun statistics there to check out if you want to take the time. 

If you give it a try, have fun with it. I’d be very interested in knowing what you find out.
