What a lot of people!
Well, I didn't think that it was a particularly common name, but apparently it is. I have been trying to sort out a word to denote people with the same name. Lots of threads on the internet discussing this, and foreign languages seem to have more specific words than English does. Somehow 'alter ego' and 'namesake' don't seem quite right, having connotations (in my mind at least) of other sorts of connectedness rather than merely the name. However, lots of interesting people out there - academics, artists, dancers, singers, reflexologists, teachers, authors, doctors, business people etc. My brand doesn't show up particularly well on Google, probably because I don't use my Facebook account very much and haven't yet signed up to Twitter. I expect that will all change as we go through the Things.
