The One and Only?

Some of you may have seen this on my friend Katie's site, but here are the results from entering my information into the web site.
LogoThere is:
person with my name in the U.S.A.
How many have your name?

It seems there is one and only one person in the U.S. with my first and last name: me! I wonder if that is really true. I did know of a basketball player in Canada who had the same name, but I thought she moved to California....and I thought there was a woman in KS with my name that was in some trouble with a court case. Other than that, I don't know of anyone else. If you know of someone with my name, please introduce us.

The site provided the following information about my first name:
There are 778,419 people in the U.S. with your first name.
Statistically the 56th most popular first name.
More than 99.9 percent of people with that first name are female. (With that spelling, I should hope so!)

Here's what is provided about my last name:
There are 510 people in the U.S. with the same last name.
Statistically the 48525th most popular last name. (tied with 4686 other last names)

Feel free to comment to tell me how many individuals with your name exist in the U.S.

Well, I am not the only one it seems. There are 1,142 of me out there. Also, it said that 99.9% of people with this name are female. I wonder where the poor .1% guy is that got stuck with this name.

I know there are 3 of us "active" Sandys in my general area. The library confirms this - also my doctor.

Using my maiden name: Lucht
Sandy: 1
Sandra: 7

I know this cannot be accurate. I added both my sister's names, and on both of them, it stated that there were 0 for each. I know they exist... *scratching head*

Sandy-san said...

There is no Josh or Joshua Groban. What?! I know this thing isn't right. *tap tap tap* Hello?!

Sandy-san said...

Now Aaron is having fun on this site. OMGoodness! There are 6 folks with the name of: Jesus Christ! *slapping forehead*

No Osama Bin Laden (good)
No Saddam Hussein (good)
No Bugs Bunny (ha!)
No Weird Al Yankovic (!!!)

I am also a "one of a kind." Must run in the family. "thumbs in suspenders, puffing out chest" (That was for Sandy-san's benefit.)

With there only being one of me, your mom might say "Thank goodness!"

Got you beat. I don't exist!

Dani said...

well if we go with my real first name--Elizabeth there are 1,405,353 other folks.

if we go with my middle/given name--Danielle there are 223,477 other people.

and finally if we go with my name--Dani there are 4,500 others out there.

I do however, exist, though if I didn't, I could start asking questions about where my taxes are going... Maybe some of you should get on that. HAHA!

Sandy-san said...

Sadly, my dear friend, Shelly Mellendorf doesn't exist. :(

To all of you who can't be found: I am truly sorry. I am now second guessing if the *1* I found is really ME! Since that stats come from the U.S. Census Bureau, I am now asking myself...would I know if I was included in the last census? Have I moved too often to be counted? Are the stats also taken from taxes, state driver's records, etc? Maybe I haven't been found either! You're right, B-ness. It is pretty sad. :(

763. And I know one of them lives in the same town as me because there's been some confusion when I make appointments at certain places.
