    Just gotta put in a two thumbs up for the fake name generator. It comes in real handy when you're a writer. I use it at least once a book.

    You cannot hook up to the internet when you're airborn. Just a note. Well, you're not supposed to.

    How many of me?

    There are 299,968,595 people in the United States of America. If everyone in the U.S. lined up single file, the line would stretch around the Earth almost 7 times. That's a lot of people.

    The U.S. Census Bureau statistics tell us that there are at least 88,799 different last names and 5,163 different first names in common use in the United States. Some names are more common than others.

    There are 49,535 people named John Smith in the United States. There are 1,048 people named James Bond, 113 people named Harry Potter , 503 people named George Bush, and 31 people named Emily Dickinson. However, Johnny Cash (39 people) songs aside there are, statistically speaking, no boys named Sue.

    What about you? How many people share your name? Enter it and find out how many of you there are.

    There are 550 people with my name!!!

    I simply had to try this bbnbama I married someone with a very odd last name and was created when his grandparents arrived in Canada about 80 years ago. And according to that site my name is the 56th most popular but there is no one in the US with my last name. Very cool, thanks

    There are There are 371,961 people in the U.S. my first name.
    Statistically the 151st most popular first name. (tied with 2 other first names)

    There are 0 people with my last name. Even with my original last name before Canada made my Grandpa change the spelling. I knew that. Once my Dad dies, that's the end of our genetic tree.

    It's sad.

    I wrote down the name of a celebrity and found out there is nobody with that person's last name.

    Hmm . . . 249 people with my real name, 300-million people--I guess that I really am one in a million!
