How Many of You Are There?

Tags: ,
One of the W&M profs posted a Facebook status saying that, thanks to Facebook, he now knows that there is more than one of him in the world. I've Googled my name enough to know that there are people out there with my first and last names, but I hadn't done a specific Facebook search yet. I gave it a shot and there is exactly one other person on Facebook (with privacy set to be found in searches) with my first and last names. There are also about 30 people total of MyFirstNameWithoutTheA MyLastName, MyFirstName MyLastNameWithoutTheA, and MyFirstNameWithoutTheA MyLastNameWithoutTheA. Every one of the other options has more people than the two of us who can spell both the first and last name correctly. No wonder everyone always tries to spell my name incorrectly.

As far as you know, are there other people out there with your name?

According to Facebook there are three other people with my exact first name and last name (or at least they use Julia as their first name, I've come across some Julianna's who go by Julia). Three are in Germany and one is in New York. If you google my name there are definitely quite a few of us out there.

I'm not at all surprised that the people with your name are Germans. It seems like a German name to me, but maybe that's just because I know a Julia from Germany, thus giving me a false sense of the popularity of the name in Germany.

Yeah, I'm not surprised either. My name is super awesome and appears in most languages. I've never had to take a different name in language class, it might be pronounced a bit differently, but it's always Julia (even in Russian).

I'm a bit surprised about the last name. My last name's Swedish, or perhaps it's German and got imported to Sweden from Germany. And the facebook peoples spell it the same way as I do, but my last name had a j in it until those crazy Swedes came to the United States.
