What's Your Name?

LogoThere are:
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Momma always said I was one of a kind!!

Here's some more interesting Census facts:
-There are 299,968,595 people in the United States of America. If everyone in the U.S. lined up single file, the line would stretch around the Earth almost 7 times. That's a lot of people.

-The U.S. Census Bureau statistics tell us that there are at least 88,799 different last names and 5,163 different first names in common use in the United States. Some names are more common than others.

-There are 49,535 people named John Smith in the United States. There are 1,048 people named James Bond, 113 people named Harry Potter , 503 people named George Bush, and 31 people named Emily Dickinson. However, Johnny Cash (39 people) songs aside there are, statistically speaking, no boys named Sue.
**All numbers estimated based upon statistical and
demographic data from US Census Bureau.**
