How Many People have your name?
http://www.howmanyofme.com/search/

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!

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

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.

0 have my first name
63,752 have my last name
0 have my full name

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
