LogoThere are
16
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?



Looted from marlowe1.

For this one, I typed in `Dave' rather than `David.' The alarming thing is, I know who two of them are. One plays in the NHL, I think in Los Angeles. The other's a sports journalist with the Newark Star-Ledger. Here he is being interviewed about something called `The Jets.' I was expecting something about aviation, but it's not.




Typing in `David' instead gives us 721 people with my name, so altogether that makes 737 False Hutches. If you should meet any of these imposters in your travels, be sure to let them know that you'll accept no substitutes...

I discovered there were zero people sharing my name in the USA.

This is possibly because I gave my name as Montmorency Bottomspindler.

"I had you pegged for a Bottomspindler."

One of the Rhode Island Bottomspindlers, o' course. We came across on the Mayflower. As the family motto has it, it was the Bottomspindlers who put the "grim" in "Pilgrim Fathers".

Just a little bit of history.

I would have thought it was "Pil". ;D

I thought you were Montgomery Wheelwright or something. Don't tell me you've had to take on another alias to evade the INS...

I did the name meme and learned there are 59 people in the U.S. with my name. Scary. Some of them are men.

0. That's because "Around 1 out of every 10 people will have a last name not on the list" because statistically rare surnames aren't included. Lazy, I call it.

Since when has your surname been statistically rare?

Rare by their definitions I suppose. Also a lot of people have trouble spelling it even though it only has five letters!

I'm afraid I'm as guilty of that as the next man. I was about to quip, `well, there's at least one because Martin lives there,' when I remembered he spells it without the `e'.
