How popular is your name?

Want to find out how many people have your name? Try this link: . It's pretty cool. Did you know that "Kit." isn't even popular enough to be listed? "Wendi" is actually lumped with "Wendy" which seems a little unfair. However, it is the 1,495th most popular first name. I am pretty impressed with how few people have my name. There are just under 15,000 Wendi's. This is in comparison to over 1.3 million Jennifer's and 1.4 million Elizabeth's. (Sorry if that is your name -- please don't take offense.) I can also check my last name. While Kit. is not listed, my maiden name is listed. There are about 1,350 Huismans in the U.S. This is quite fun!

Okay, back to the real world. Tonight we are going with Hans and Rachel to Chanhassen Dinner Theatre. I am really excited about this. Rachel set this up a few months back, and I think we are seeing Grease. It should be a very fun time. I have never been to a dinner theatre so I will try to update you later tonight, or, at the very least, tomorrow morning. JB is still a little under-the-weather but feeling better enough to go.

Hey--you will have tons of fun tonight! Byron took me to Chanhassen on one of our first dates and we had so much fun.

One of the things growing up that I hated was being called average. Average in height, etc. Now I have an commonly used name, which again makes me average. 1.4 million Elizabeth's, 1.8 Brown's (my maiden name). Now I get out of the average area with my last name of Ray. There are only 165,000 Ray's. Thank you Ronnie for marrying me and making me not so average any more. :)

Well, i'm not sure about this because my Sister-in-law's name is Janet Kotynski and it says noone else is named that. Also -all my relatives are Kotynskis and there are like 25 grandchildren even so how can there be zero people in the US with the last name Kotynski?

There are 0 people in the U.S. with the last name Kotynski.
This name is not found in our database, this means the name is relatively uncommon. what this means.
There are 0 people in the U.S. named Janet Kotynski.
One or both of the names you entered were not found in our database.

Statistically the 89th most popular first name. (tied with 2 other first names)

Ebby, I don't think you are average AT ALL!!! I think you are unique (of course Ronnie is an added bonus!!!)
