Um, Really?
LogoThere are:
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Well that's more than a little disturbing. Someone's parents have an awful lot of 'splaining to do. Thanks to Ashburnite via Static Cling for the link. And for the unsettling feeling that will likely last all day...

No one in the USA with my name either. But there is a town in Czech Republic that is called my last name. Lol.

There are nine people with my full name and I am shocked! My last name is not that common.

I've got 3!! I already know them, too, one of them, she's a big environmentalist, the other is a DJ at a radio station down south (or at least that's what her ex told me when he contacted me thinking I was her :)

All that does is show...

1) inaccurate it is

2) ...there are some seriously uniquely named bloggers out there.

Obviously you just aren't part of whatever database(s) the thing searches from. I would've figured the number of people with your name to be small anyway...

Just for kicks, I threw the last name Smith into the engine and came back with just over 3 million, a little more than 1% of the US population. Feels like that number is small, doesn't it?

I think this is a really interesting thing to play with:

The Baby Name Wizard

It's cool to see the historical trends of first names. I forget where I saw this first, but the column noted the drop-off of the name "Adolph" in the 1940s. Surprising, eh?

KassyK- I bet you're like, royalty, over there!

Sweet- Aretha? Hest? Bovary? Mulva?

I-66- Yep, with the name Tits McGee I guess I'm bound to scramble the database.

V- That's hilarious that you know your name doppelgangers.

Static- This reminds me. There's a tall, thin white guy in my neighborhood, mid 40s I'm guessing, who has short dark hair and, oddly, a Hitler 'stache. I see him jogging or walking to work and in my head I'm like, "Wow, the Hitler facial hair? When you already look like him? Whatever floats your U-boat I guess."

This is the 1st Congressional District representiative for North Carolina.

G.K. Butterfield

He's let the 'stache extend more toward the edge of his upper lip, which is fortunate because he had the toothbrush working when he was running for office.

Make sure to note, in his biography, that he is a black man (who once had the Hitler 'stache).

I don't think this site is right. I just typed in my name, and apparently I don't exist.

*Cue* identity crisis.

HAHAHA Wouldn't that be hilarious? I think its just because my family is only second generation American on my dad's side and third on my mom's side so we don't have much American history.

But from what I hear, Czech area and Hungary are bustling with various Kassys by name. It's craziness!!
