Limited Edition

Bored on a Thursday afternoon? Here's some internet fun for you:

According to online resources, I am unique in the US. Well, my particular name combination is. The link is How Many of Me [dot] Com. Check it out if you're curious how many of you there are...

[thanks to Jen for the link]

For those technically minded readers, this search is mainly based on 1990 census information and though it claims that some names are not included because they are too rare, it still managed to come up with a "1" answer for me rather than "1 or fewer" that it did for my brother and sister's names. Why the difference? I'm not sure.

No offense, but I don't even have to look.

I think there are under 20 people in the US with my last name (too lazy to count) and none of them are named, or have ever had the name Michelle.

There are 262 with my first and married last name (I was just forwarded an imdb page for one of them today!) but I'm in the "1 or fewer" category with my maiden name.

There are 97 people in the U.S. with my name. I feel popular.

Over a million of my last name (8th most popular surname), 1355 of my first name, and 5 or fewer of with the combination of both.
My maiden name however, has fewer than 335, and the combination results in one or fewer exact matches.

Yeah, I am unique! Bothy my maiden and married names are unique, only one of me. This is good!

MWT said...

One or fewer here too. ;)

I'm slightly more unique with my Maiden name, but pretty much still unique with my Married name (1 or fewer ?!?!?!? What the frack!? Clearly there is 1 so it can't be fewer, duh!)

This is a great way to try out baby names! . . . cool!

Hi Anne.

I stopped by and found this link, so cool!

I'm the only one of me in the USA.
