    There is this cool website that tells you how many people with your name (I think maybe just in the US) there are.

    My first name is John (pretty common) and there are 4,967,091 people with that first name.

    My last name is Hansen and there are 142,219 people that share me last name...not that common.

    Find out Here

    It's pretty cool to know...

    19 people in the US with the name Andrew McCrea. I know one of them is at www.andrewmccrea.com XD.

    I've got 3,584,234 with the same first name and it's the 7th most popular first name. There are 2209 with the same last name as mine. There are only 26 people in the US with the same name as me though! It's alot more popular where I live here in the UK though, there are 2 other people in the same village as me with the same name - and both completely un-related to me!

    Well, maybe I'm a bit paranoid - but you're delivering these people a first grade list of existing names of real people.

    Not only does the site look a little "phishy" to me, the owner didn't even register it under his own name. Look up the whois data and you'll see that it was registered by "howmanyofme.com Private Registrant". They're also not listing any form of contact information on the webpage, as far as I could see.

    While this doesn't necessarily mean that this site is shady, it still is an indicator for me not to use this service (besides not living in the US and not having an english name anyways, that is [​IMG] ).

    Please be careful.

    Those statistics are inaccurate. You couldn't go to a mall without seeing Hugh Butz all over the place.

    While both names you entered were found in our database, neither was common enough to make it likely that someone in the U.S. has that name.
