How many have your name?


How Many Of is a site I found through a friend’s LiveJournal (it was a friends-only post) that tells you how many people in the US share your name, based on census data. Surprisingly, my name isn’t all that popular, with only 150 people there sharing my name – I’d have expected it to be much higher. ‘Turner’ is the 44th most popular surname but ‘Neil’ isn’t so much, coming well down in 524th place. This strikes me as slightly odd, since ‘Neil’ has its origins in Scots Gaelic and many Americans have Scottish heritage, but there you go.

It also tells you what proportion of a particular gender have that name. All of the Neils in the US are male, but apparently 0.25% of Davids are actually female – bearing in mind that there’s 3.5 million Davids, that’s a lot of girls called David.


  1. There are zero people in the US with the name Sven Latham, which would explain why I got my domain so easily 🙂
    Slightly more unexpected, there are zero people with the first name Sven. I would’ve thought there’d have been a few!

  2. There are 14 of me. I always thought one was enough, but I guess I was wrong.

  3. 135 of me – and even a famous one!!!! Excellent.
