    This is an interesting website. Using census data they can determine how many of you there are here in the US. "You" being people with the same name as you. It gives the number of people with your first name, the number of people with your last name, and the number of people with your first and last name. It doesn't include middle names.

    There is a list of other famous names on the website as well.

    It is all statistics-based estimates, based on probabilities of having certain names. It does not take into account how certain last names make it more or less likely to have certain last names, for instance.



    Statistically, there are only 125 of me. Apparently neither my first or last name are that popular.

    There are 5 other people that have the same full name. First name there is 17,997. Last name there is 107,988.

    This is good for me: 99.9 percent that have my name are male. :rofl:

    4000 for my first name, my last name doesn't fit. Sectioning up my last name gives my 0 for one half, 9779 for the other.

    lol I didn't need a website to tell me that Richard was gonna be a popular name :lol:
    (8th most popular first name apparantly)
    I think it lies about my last name though, there's gotta be way more than seven and a half thousand :(
