There are 17 of me!

In America, that is. Thanks to Pop Candy for pointing out this site, where you can find out how popular your first and last names are (80th and 4372nd, respectively), and how many other people in the U.S. have your name. Amanda Mattoses of the world country, unite! And bring one of the 113 Harry Potters with you!

How many of you are there?

Only 3 of me. And I'm almost certainly at least distantly related to all of them, I'd wager.

It's funny that the front page says there are 1,048 people named James Bond in the country--one of them was one of my first bosses, back when I was a camp counselor. He and his twin brother John were the joint camp directors.

There is no one with my name--0 people with my first and last name, and 0 people with my last name at all! How could that be?!? Its like I don't even exist. There's only 1 person with Erik's name, which makes me feel pretty lucky, since I'm dating him. his stock just rose a little. Apparently they don't count late 19th century Swedish economists on that thing, since Erik shares a name with one.

Thanks, Amanda. Now I feel lonely and confused.

There are 81 guys (I'm assuming guys at least) running around out there with my name. And almost 30,000 people with my last name, which kind of stunned me.
