I'm not the only??

Found this on JenLa's blog. It also says my first name is the 15th most popular in the US, nearly 1.5 million of us. Considering that I didn't meet any other girl with my name until high school, that is particularly weird! But I've since met a lot of other women with the same name. I think it must have been rather popular in the 50s.

How many have your name?


In knitting content, I'm working my way through the leventy-dozen ends I left by putting lots of stripes on the earflap hats. I'm also discovering that I was TOO good at tidying up the yarn that was not in the stash room; I can't find one of the main colors, needed to make the tassel thingies. Stash Diving Tuesday!!

Whoo hoo! I'm almost the only me. Just one other person with my name. I'm not really surprised, as I only share my last name with 869 others. Now I'm curious about the other one. I feel a Google search coming on....

I know there's only two of me. In this country. It was the weirdest thing...I know she had a kid in Dallas in about 1982, the adoption agency contacted me when I was living in Germany.

There are 6212 of me. No surprise with a last name like Jones - actually I thought there would be more! I know of two other ladies in my neighbourhood alone!

Oh, and there's another one of you in my spinning class!

There's only one of me, too.

I just finished weaving in a zillion ends, too. (on my striped tote that now needs to be felted) Thrilling, no?

There are fourteen people in the US with my first and last name. Only five with my first and maiden name.

My best friend from grades 1-3 shared your first name, and I went to teens group at church with a girl who had both your names. I didn't like her that much -- you're MUCH nicer!!!

There's only one of me in the US (how many in Canada?). But I copied the text in the box and can't get it to post on my blog :(
