Quick link today.

* Statistically the 4019th most popular first name.

* Statistically the 124th most popular last name.

    My first name is the 21st most popular name.

    My last name is the 66,181st most popular name.

    Yes folks, it’s the heartwarming tale of how the prom queen name met the geek name and found twu wuv.

  2. Jaye you find the coolest stuff. I sent that link for the tombstone to some friends who report that they’re STILL screwing around with it, they love it so much. And now this.

    JJ, I think it’s good for normal names to be combined with unsusual ones. Adds a little spice.

    Claud, one could say I find these links because I’m good at procrastinating. I say it’s because I’m resourceful.

    There are 276 of me.

    Scary. You’d think my book would have been finished a log time ago with those statistics. ­čśë

  5. Hmmm. Apparently there are 1516 people in the US with my first name and it is also the 4019th most popular first name. Really? And also my last name is shared by only 970 people.

    I clicked on the “random famous person” button and it gave me Doug E. Doug. Uh, what?

    Well, I know there’s at least one other Tanya because her fans visit my blog.

    No, I’m not happy about that at all.


  9. There are 764 of me. 4,777,588 people named Robert (3rd most popular) and 48,519 with my last name (716th most popular).

    I feel so common…

    That’s cool! Except that if I go by my given name of James (#1), there are a cozy 5 million of us.

    We could be our own religion.

    On a semi-related note, have you ever had anyone with the same name email you from your blog? I’ve had 3 Jamie Fords email and say “hey dude, keep representing!” (Or something like that).

    There can be only one.

  12. Apparently, though my first name is the 170ish most popular first name and my last name is in the 6ks, there is NO ONE in the U.S. with my whole name.

    I don’t exist.

    I’m having a serious identity crisis.
