Go to this link and put in your first and last name and it tells you how many people in the US have your first name, your last name and then the combo.

No one has my first name, which is Modonna, around 58,000 have my last name, which is Wilkinson and fairly common.

No one in the US has my first and last name combo. Guess I better never get in trouble with the cops because I sure would be easy to find! :teehee:

Wow, 167 people in the US have my maiden name / first name combination....13 have my old married name combo, and no one has my new married name combo.

Edit to add - no one in the US shares a first name with my daughter :)

Hi Madonna! I just wanted to let you know there is a lady that works for my department that is named Madonna :)

Now, let me go see how many of me there are!

Wow...there are 9 people with my first and (married) last name and 31 with my first and (maiden) last name! Wow!

This is a little disturbing, though:
More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Charlene are female.

Who would name their son Charlene??????

Says there are 333,932 of my first name and 0 of my married last name. But, I know there is other people out there with my married last name and one other person with my first and last married name. So the site is not always correct.

It said there are three people with my first and last maiden name.

Hi Madonna! I just wanted to let you know there is a lady that works for my department that is named Madonna :)

Now, let me go see how many of me there are!

My name is spelled with an "O" though, Modonna and pronounced Mah-Donna. I always tell people I had it first and that mine is actually pronounced correctly as in Mod and the other is Mad as in Ma-Donna. I was named after my father's sister who was killed in a car accident way back in the 1930's. I go by Donna to pretty much everyone except for legal stuff, but my mother never ever called me anything but Modonna.

I apparently do not exist. though there are 51,608 people with my first name and only 1,396 with my last name. That makes sense as my family came here in the late '60s and early '70s, and its not a common last name, even in the country where they were born. though apparently a boy does have my name. that poor boy should just be named christopher or christian.

Pretty cool.
I put in several family member's names. My mil doesn't exist, nor does my granddad.

787,775 people share my name and it is the 56th most popular name. 0 people share my last name at all. Hmmm. I'll have to go check my parents and brother's birth certificates. :) Now if I use my married last name (which I don't use) there are 362 people who share both and 139,644 people share my last name. Now if I use my legal first name (which I also don't go by) then there are 33, 393 others and 15 who share my first and last names that I dont' use LOL!!

Ha! I'm the only one in the US with my maiden name! BUT, my married last name is SO LONG (16 letters over 3 words) that it won't even fit in the box unless I take the spaces out, which kind of defeats the purpose. But I have a feeling that I'm the only one of those, too...

I swore up and down as a kid that I was going to marry a guy whose last name was "Smith" or "Jones" so I could have a last name people could actually pronounce. What do I get? An even more ridiculous last name which translates to "Jones from the Rhineland." Karma hates me. :lol:

Not sure about this but according to it, I do not exist either:shrug:. I clicked on Click here for more details and it says this:
"Q: Does the program really know how many people have the same name as me?
No. The program returns an estimate based on available data. It should be considered a "ballpark figure". It will usually return an answer in the right general area, but the chances of the figure being exactly right are very low."

and it also says this:
"
Q: How accurate is this program?
A: More accurate than a Magic 8-ball. Less accurate than distributing and collecting 300 million surveys."



I know that my married name is unique but I also know that there are some people out there with it. I looked it up in our old phone book in San Diego and there were a couple there. Now my maiden name, there are 112,324 out there with that. And my full maiden name, there are 277 people out there with that, that is kinda weird to me. I wonder if any of there have my middle name too?

Better than an 8 Ball? I think not. My maiden name is rare, but there are some very well known businesses with it. My married name wasn't on there either.

Last time I did it, my married name came up, so maybe the program is out having a drink.

I only know of a baby that is buried in a cemetry in my hometown that has my first name...and then another little girl in my hometown...her mom was expecting twins and asked if she could use my name and have a Dustina and a Dustin... that is all I know about :shrug:

Darcia
03-07-2008, 11:09 AM
I'm the only Darcia according to this. I met a girl named Darcia once in Vancouver.

My parents took their honeymoon in Mexico and the name is popular there, they liked it and said if they ever have a girl they would name her Darcia (Dar see a). Funny because I am actually Ukrainian and in Ukrainian my name is pronounced 'Dar-sha'. I like either.

In the database, none with my name.
In USA about 30,000
My name is Corinne. Pronounced (Cor-reene)
I am Danish by heritage and named after my great-grandmother.... and get people asking how to spell my name often "with one r or two r's?"
I did not expect that many people to have my name, so that's cool, like to see non-traditional names pop up.

There are 412,951 people in the U.S. with the name I go by. There are 475,198 people in the U.S. with the same given name I have (i.e. the first name on my birth certificate). There are 63,765 people in the U.S. with my last name. There are 87 people in the U.S. with the same first/last name combo.

That site is pretty fascinating.
