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.

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.

So much for my great skills in "attention to detail"! I never noticed you were "MOd" and not "MAd"

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!!
