I've seen this before on other people's blogs and decided to post about it myself. How Many of Me? is a cool site where you can put in your name and see how many people in the U.S. have your name. I don't think it has 100% reliability since it said there were "0" people in the U.S. with the name "Reese." Um....ever heard of Reese Witherspoon??? Maybe that's not her legal name....but I know a little girl with that first name.....anyway, it's just something fun to look at.
Interestingly, there are "0" people with my name in the U.S. and I know it is my legal name. Does this mean I don't exist? I typed in some names and it says there is "1" person with that name but for me, it just says "0."
Here is how my family comes out name-wise:
There are 331,465 people with the name "Chris," 14,488 with our last name, and 16 named Chris Shanks. If I change it to "Christopher," it jumps to 1,556,837 and 75 named Christopher Shanks.
There are 1500 people with the name "Jacinda," and 0 named Jacinda Shanks. (still don't get that!!!!) If I look at my maiden name, it says there are 5 people named Jacinda Jackson.
There are 26,997 people with the name "Gracie," but only 1 named Gracie Shanks-yea!!!!
Not surprisingly, there are 169,482 people with the name "Katie," but only 8 named Katie Shanks.
Just something light hearted & fun to do!
Have a good weekend!
