Type your real name in a search engine(of your choice).
Enclose it in "    ".
Just how many hits do you get?
I got nearly 6000, some of them where me.
What is the wierdest thing that a "you" (that means someone who shares your name)got on the net for?

You know what? The world is not full of people named Charmion.

I got two pages of hits, all of them referring to stuff I wrote, plus Google's delicate hint that the Internet is cluttered with pretty well identical clag that I could have if I really want it.

I'm kinda flattered to find out that quite a large number of personal websites link to or just plain steal Fourth Dimension, the history feature I write for the Canadian Forces newspaper and website.

4 hits. 2 are me, 2 are for one individual on a Descendancy Chart for a family which is not at all related to me.

A search for my birth name yielded 70 hits, none are me. Wish it were me.. the main person there was filthy rich!

Name in a previous life yielded 3,700 hits. I'm too lazy to check. Hopefully none are really me. (Glad that I dumped that name).

There are about 6 of "me" in the little city where I've lived the past 10 years. One is a veterinarian.   One has a really good job with really good benefits--I know because a few years back the pharmacy put my meds on her insurance account. She also is one year to the month younger than me. & at the time of the ins booboo, within a few blocks. When I was in college there were at least 8 gals with my name & all sopranos--the singing kind, not the mafioso kind. I imagine if I were to "google" myself the amount of hits would be roughly the same as Pi.

My name.com is a saxophone teacher in Nottingham. Most hits go to my namesake arrested for major fraud in the States, then to a surfin' dude. I appear only occasionally, since few people spell my name right. I don't get many hits with a mis-spelling either, though.

My handle generates a couple of software nerds in the US and Oz.

If I put myself and my wife in, I get loads of hits on a "swingers" network!

Hmm....

"About 1,650,000" says Google.

Having the same name as the subject/victim of a Stephen King novel seems to boost my rating.

All things considered, I don't think I will bother checking them all out!

1,190 and most of those were links to mudcat threads I've posted on!

It asked me if I'd meant to search for 'muppets'.
As if I hadn't got my work cut out getting 'catters to know the difference between me and muppett, now google is confused!

Ok, there's me, including a former life.

Then, this is neat, because I'm blind so my alter-egoes are:

an illustrator of children's books
a physical therapist, with a bunch of scholarly papers

I wonder if my third cousin is either one of these?; she share's my first and surname. I think it was something like 500 hits altogether.
