To be fair, I have a hyphenated first name, which is what I used. If I used only the first half of my first name, which is what I typically go by, then there are 5 of us.

    I was really curious to see how this would turn out. Both of my names are pretty common, but neither are spelled in the common ways ("Alen Hylton"). Since my first name has a few common spellings, I tried all of them with the more common spelling of my last name and I came up with a "rating" of 30-40 people with each variation.

Most Schippes dropped the e at the end when they moved to the US.

    This thing claims there are 0 of me in the States:

    - There are 4,991,477 people in the U.S. with the first name James.
    - Statistically the 1st most popular first name.
    - 99.7 percent of people with the first name James are male.
    ---
    - There are 0 people in the U.S. with the last name Kalyn.

    I know this isn't true because I found an American James Kalyn on Google. He plays the saxophone. My girlfriend's mom also found him on Google, and she now refuses to believe that I don't play the saxophone.
The site now shows two James Kalyns in the US - presumably one is the saxophonist and the other is my dad, who lives in Florida for part of the year. James is still the most popular first name, which surprises me - aren't we all getting old and dying off?

Quelle surprise, my Polishsplosion of a last name makes me fairly unique. Someone contacted me from a village in Poland with the same last name, so I wonder if it's geographically specific.

There's 13 of me in the USA. I come across a couple of them every so often.

My favourite guy with my name (well, other than me) is the bald hairstylist in Santa Monica.

During my earlier illicit days, I actually shared my name with a local Police Chief. There is also a lawyer in Louisiana who's ads I have seen on billboards on the highway.

There is one guy that I know of with my name. I only know him because he defrauded some union's pension fund of millions of dollars and I used to get random hateful messages on facebook because of it.
