How many have your name?

This is how many of me there are with my same maiden name.

Here are some stats on my first name:

There are 177,766 people in the U.S. with the first name Holly.
Statistically the 340th most popular first name.
More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Holly are female.

So what about you?? (Some of you I already know because I played with it and searched your names already...sneaky me) Not sure how accurate this info is, or what their source is...but it is fun.

Supposedly only 12 people in the country have my name combo. I know at least three people with my combo in my part of MD alone, so that can't be accurate. As a test I put in a unique name of someone I know and this is what it told me: "There are 0 people in the U.S. named *** *****. 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." Uh-huh.

So they aren't actually checking registries for these names, but rather calculating the statistical likelihood of that name combination existing based on how popular each name is.
