Hey ATS, I was just bored and looking through the police blotters and came across my name for what isnt the first time. The only problem here is that the person in the blotter isnt me

Theres a person a few years older than I am, the next town over, with the exact first, middle, and last name. This kid is always getting in trouble and makes my name look bad! I'm always explaining to people that Im not the person that gets arrested or in trouble all the time lol Anyone else have some ironic or funny stories to share?

My wife shares the same name (Last and First) with a semi-famous Author.

As we're big readers, we often interact with people associated with bookstores, and it always raises some eyebrows...hehe...especially as she's famous enough that people have heard of her, but not so famous as to be recognized by face. She isn't the author of course, just the same exact name.

Your alibi has been logged and verified. Now go rob that bank and blame it on your evil doppelganger living in the next town. We'll vouch for you!

A person with the same name as me is an important sculptor.
I've found works by him in a couple of public locations.

Try having the name Michael... of course shortened to Mike... growing up in my high school there were two other Mike M's... because i have a very common last name too.. so yeah the name thing can suck, this is why my children have very uncommon names and we use their middle names as their main names... lol

Yeah, I actually went to school with a guy who had my exact name (first, middle, and last) AND the same birthday (though he was 2 years older than me).

And I've seen many, many people with the same first/last name as me.

That's partly why my screen name, is my name. Am I really putting my privacy or identity in jeopardy? I doubt it.

Go ahead, find me. My name is Chris Wilson. Have fun.

There are a few women with the same name as me. It was pretty scary when I discovered years ago we had the same doctor. That can be dangerous with easy mix ups!

I googled my name last year and found 4 in my country and a few in the US.. one of which is a big gay porn star apparently.

I share a name with a woman who co - authored a book extolling the various uses and history of rubber.
Sounds like we were cut from the same cloth.

my first name is very common but i would be suprised to find anyone with the same last name as Heaslip who isnt related to me.

My first name is the most common name in America. I can't be in a group of 10 or more without someone having it, and it could be male or female. My brother's is probably the second most common, and my dad, the third. Only my mother is fairly unique.

Our last name is actually a minor noble name in Wales. There are a few famous people with it (and yes, they are distantly related). One's a well-known, if not instantly known character actor of about a generation ago...another was an aviatrix who actually did what Earhart set out to do, and yet is less famous for it, hehe....
(and of course, the previously mentioned author).

I can trace our family back to coming over here in the 1800's (1807 to be exact). I lucked out, and found where one of my relatives had done all the research for me. (it's quite impressive how complete it is).

My mother had a case of mistaken identity, she had a lot of medical problems, and apprently so did this other woman, with the same dr and name

She would get reminders for appointments, only to show up for an examination that isn't hers!

Funny you should start this thread today.

(This is my second coincidence in the last 24 hours).

Last night while helping my daughter on her computer I told her never to put her own info into anything online unless she asks me first. Then I mentioned there will be other people in the world with her name. "No way", she says. So we googled her name and found about 10 other folk with the same handle. She was shocked. She's only 10, and she never realised someone else might have her name.

Yes, there are many with my first and last name that I've found on internet searches.

One is a musician. One is a published martial arts instructor. One is in the US military. One is a doctor. One is a CEO of some company. There are many others.

I don't think we all share the same middle name though.
