How Many of Me

Here's a neat little site I discovered years ago, which can tell you how many people in the United States have any particular name.  Put in your name(s) and see what happens:

It turns out there are 4 people in the USA with the name "Martin Ingham," so that leaves 3 others out there with my name.  That's one reason I use the middle initial "T" so I'm not mistaken for one of those other guys.  That, and there is a pretty popular car dealer in the UK called Martin Ingham, as well.  Research has shown that there are a lot more people with my name outside the USA (particularly in the UK).


  1. What a neat website! There are 18 of me out there. Poor saps. Bet they had tough times in elementary school, too.

  2. Cool link. And I think the Harvard Hamsters should be your mascot for today :-)

    Have fun with A to Z!

  3. Woot! There's only 3 Jenelle Schmidts in the US (and I'm one of them)

    Fun post!

    Happy A-Zing!

  4. I know there's at least one other that shares my name. He writes songs and is a retired school teacher.

  5. Two people are listed with "Anthony Laplume." One is listed for "Tony Laplume." So apparently one way or another I'm pretty unique.

  6. I don't live in America, but this is certainly interesting. Especially as I have an unusual surname in England, and it seems that it's also an unusual surname in America. And I now have a new internet toy to play with, to increase my procrastination!
